## 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 1000 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 1000 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

1000 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 1000 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 539.95680345662 kt

The final result is:

1000 km/h → 539.95680345662 kt

We conclude that 1000 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 539.95680345662 knots:

1000 kilometers per hour = 539.95680345662 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0018519999999969 × 1000 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 1000 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0018519999999969 knots.

## Approximate result

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

1000 km/h ≅ 539.957 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero zero two times one thousand kilometers per hour.
