## 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 98.5 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 98.5 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

98.5 kt → V(m/s)

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

V(m/s) = 98.5 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V(m/s) = 50.672777777734 m/s

The final result is:

98.5 kt → 50.672777777734 m/s

We conclude that 98.5 knots is equivalent to 50.672777777734 meters per second:

98.5 knots = 50.672777777734 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 0.019734461852206 × 98.5 knots.

Another way is saying that 98.5 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.019734461852206 meters per second.

## Approximate result

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

98.5 kt ≅ 50.673 m/s

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