## 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 965 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 965 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

965 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 965 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 496.43888888846 m/s

The final result is:

965 kt → 496.43888888846 m/s

We conclude that 965 knots is equivalent to 496.43888888846 meters per second:

965 knots = 496.43888888846 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 0.0020143466242925 × 965 knots.

Another way is saying that 965 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0020143466242925 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 sixty-five knots is approximately four hundred ninety-six point four three nine meters per second:

965 kt ≅ 496.439 m/s

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