Calculating the difference between metres per second and knots? Our accurate speed converter is great for this m/s to knots conversion with more available.

These two units of speed, **knots** and **metres per second**, are both used for generally slower speeds such as knots which are used for ships and m/s to measure things travelling in space. Also, they are both used non-commercially and are less likely to be found in everyday measurements and calculations. View all of our speed converters and try out this **m/s – knots conversion tool**.

## How to use the Converter for Mps to Knots?

Input the amount of metres per second into the box above and click “convert” to be given a new quantity in knots by our **m/s to knots converter**. If you need to convert in the opposite direction, convert knots to metres per second.

## Formula to Convert m/s – kn

In order to do this **conversion m/s to knots** by hand, you might need to know the mathematical formula so we have provided it below for your use. As some examples, 13 m/s = 25.27 kn and 35 m/s = 68.03 kn

**[number of] metres per second x 1.94384 = [number of] knots**

## When to use m/s?

**Metres per second** are used less commonly in everyday situations as a unit of speed used to measure slower speeds. The most common industry to use m/s is in astronomy, however, sometimes m/s is still too slow so km/s is used. Metres per second are defined by the amount of distance travelled in metres, divided by the time it took in seconds. View our **m/s – kn calculator**.

## When to use knots?

A **knot** is equivalent to one nautical mile exactly and this unit of speed is an important measurement used in meteorology but also in the air navigation and maritime industries. Its main purpose is to calculate the speed of vessels relative to the fluids in which they travel, whether that is water or air. Above is our** metres per second to knots converter**.
