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 608 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 608 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

608 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 608 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 312.78222222195 m/s

The final result is:

608 kt → 312.78222222195 m/s

We conclude that 608 knots is equivalent to 312.78222222195 meters per second:

608 knots = 312.78222222195 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 0.0031971126520432 × 608 knots.

Another way is saying that 608 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0031971126520432 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that six hundred eight knots is approximately three hundred twelve point seven eight two meters per second:

608 kt ≅ 312.782 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero three times six hundred eight knots.
