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 12.7 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 12.7 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

12.7 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 12.7 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 6.8574514038991 kt

The final result is:

12.7 km/h → 6.8574514038991 kt

We conclude that 12.7 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 6.8574514038991 knots:

12.7 kilometers per hour = 6.8574514038991 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.1458267716533 × 12.7 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 12.7 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.1458267716533 knots.

Approximate result

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

12.7 km/h ≅ 6.857 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point one four six times twelve point seven kilometers per hour.
