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 872 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 872 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

872 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 872 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 448.59555555517 m/s

The final result is:

872 kt → 448.59555555517 m/s

We conclude that 872 knots is equivalent to 448.59555555517 meters per second:

872 knots = 448.59555555517 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 0.00222917946381 × 872 knots.

Another way is saying that 872 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00222917946381 meters per second.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that eight hundred seventy-two knots is approximately four hundred forty-eight point five nine six meters per second:

872 kt ≅ 448.596 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero two times eight hundred seventy-two knots.
