## 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*.
