## Convert 472 Knots to Meters/Second

To calculate 472 Knots to the corresponding value in Meters/Second, multiply the quantity in Knots by 0.514444444444 (conversion factor). In this case we should multiply 472 Knots by 0.514444444444 to get the equivalent result in Meters/Second:

472 Knots x 0.514444444444 = 242.81777777757 Meters/Second

**472 Knots is equivalent to 242.81777777757 Meters/Second.**

## How to convert from Knots to Meters/Second

The conversion factor from Knots to Meters/Second is 0.514444444444. To find out how many Knots in Meters/Second, multiply by the conversion factor or use the Velocity converter above. Four hundred seventy-two Knots is equivalent to two hundred forty-two point eight one eight Meters/Second.

## Definition of Knot

The knot is a unit of speed equal to one nautical mile (1.852 km) per hour, approximately 1.151 mph. The ISO Standard symbol for the knot is kn. The same symbol is preferred by the IEEE; kt is also common. The knot is a non-SI unit that is "accepted for use with the SI". Worldwide, the knot is used in meteorology, and in maritime and air navigation—for example, a vessel travelling at 1 knot along a meridian travels approximately one minute of geographic latitude in one hour. Etymologically, the term derives from counting the number of knots in the line that unspooled from the reel of a chip log in a specific time.

## Definition of Meter/Second

Metre per second (American English: meter per second) is an SI derived unit of both speed (scalar) and velocity (vector quantity which specifies both magnitude and a specific direction), defined by distance in metres divided by time in seconds. The SI unit symbols are m·s−1, m s−1 or m/s sometimes (unofficially) abbreviated as "mps". Where metres per second are several orders of magnitude too slow to be convenient, such as in astronomical measurements, velocities may be given in kilometres per second, where 1 km/s is 1000 metres per second, sometimes unofficially abbreviated as "kps".
