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 kilometer per hour into knots we have to multiply 1 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 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 1 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 0.53995680345662 kt

The final result is:

1 km/h → 0.53995680345662 kt

We conclude that 1 kilometer per hour is equivalent to 0.53995680345662 knots:

1 kilometer per hour = 0.53995680345662 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 1.8519999999969 × 1 kilometer per hour.

Another way is saying that 1 kilometer per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 1.8519999999969 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one kilometer per hour is approximately zero point five four knots:

1 km/h ≅ 0.54 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately one point eight five two times one kilometer per hour.
