How to Convert Knots to Centimeters Per Second Using an Easy Conversion Formula

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

Convert knots to centimeters per second with this simple formula:

centimeters per second = knots × 51.444444

Converting a knot speed measurement to a centimeter per second measurement involves multiplying your speed by the conversion ratio to find the result. A knot is equal to 51.444444 centimeters per second, so to convert simply multiply by 51.444444.

For example:
5 kn = (5 × 51.444444) = 257.222222 cm/sec
