Convert from knots to meters per second formula
Total meters per second = 

For example, if you want to convert 500 knots to meters per second then,
 = 257.201646090535 m/s 
Convert from meters per second to knots formula
Total knots =  Total meters per second x 1.944 
257.201646090535 m/s = 257.201646090535 x 1.944 = 500 kn
Knots
The knot is a unit of speed equal to one nautical mile per hour, exactly 1.852 km/h. The ISO standard symbol for the knot is kn. The knot is a nonSI unit. The knot is used in meteorology, and in maritime and air navigation. The speeds of vessels relative to the fluids in which they travel (boat speeds and air speeds) are measured in knots.
Meters per second
The metre per second is an SI derived unit of both speed (scalar quantity) and velocity (vector quantity (which have direction and magnitude)), equal to the speed of a body covering a distance of one metre in a time of one second. The SI unit symbols are m/s, m·s^{−1}, m s^{−1}, or m/s, sometimes (unofficially) called as mps.
