## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from knots to meters per second is 0.514444444444, which means that 1 knot is equal to 0.514444444444 meters per second:

1 kt = 0.514444444444 m/s

To convert 585 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 585 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from knots to meters per second. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 kt → 0.514444444444 m/s

585 kt → V(m/s)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in meters per second:

V(m/s) = 585 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 300.94999999974 m/s

The final result is:

585 kt → 300.94999999974 m/s

We conclude that 585 knots is equivalent to 300.94999999974 meters per second:

585 knots = 300.94999999974 meters per second

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter per second is equal to 0.0033228110981919 × 585 knots.

Another way is saying that 585 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0033228110981919 meters per second.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that five hundred eighty-five knots is approximately three hundred point nine five meters per second:

585 kt ≅ 300.95 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero three times five hundred eighty-five knots.
