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 10 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 10 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

10 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 10 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 5.3995680345662 kt

The final result is:

10 km/h → 5.3995680345662 kt

We conclude that 10 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 5.3995680345662 knots:

10 kilometers per hour = 5.3995680345662 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.18519999999969 × 10 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 10 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.18519999999969 knots.

Approximate result

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

10 km/h ≅ 5.4 kt

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