Conversion formula

The conversion factor from kilometers per hour to knots is 0.53995680345662, which means that 1 kilometer per hour is equal to 0.53995680345662 knots:

1 km/h = 0.53995680345662 kt

To convert 1.7 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 1.7 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from kilometers per hour to knots. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 km/h → 0.53995680345662 kt

1.7 km/h → V(kt)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in knots:

V(kt) = 1.7 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 0.91792656587626 kt

The final result is:

1.7 km/h → 0.91792656587626 kt

We conclude that 1.7 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 0.91792656587626 knots:

1.7 kilometers per hour = 0.91792656587626 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 1.0894117647041 × 1.7 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 1.7 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 1.0894117647041 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one point seven kilometers per hour is approximately zero point nine one eight knots:

1.7 km/h ≅ 0.918 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately one point zero eight nine times one point seven kilometers per hour.
