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 946 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 946 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

946 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 946 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 486.66444444402 m/s

The final result is:

946 kt → 486.66444444402 m/s

We conclude that 946 knots is equivalent to 486.66444444402 meters per second:

946 knots = 486.66444444402 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 0.0020548039032159 × 946 knots.

Another way is saying that 946 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0020548039032159 meters per second.

Approximate result

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

946 kt ≅ 486.664 m/s

An alternative is also that one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero two times nine hundred forty-six knots.
