## 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 521 knots into meters per second we have to multiply 521 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

521 kt → V_{(m/s)}

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

V_{(m/s)} = 521 kt × 0.514444444444 m/s

V_{(m/s)} = 268.02555555532 m/s

The final result is:

521 kt → 268.02555555532 m/s

We conclude that **521 knots is equivalent to 268.02555555532 meters per second**:

521 knots = 268.02555555532 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 0.0037309875094862 × 521 knots**.

Another way is saying that *521 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0037309875094862 meters per second*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **five hundred twenty-one knots is approximately two hundred sixty-eight point zero two six meters per second**:

521 kt ≅ 268.026 m/s

An alternative is also that *one meter per second is approximately zero point zero zero four times five hundred twenty-one knots*.
