## 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 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 12 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 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 12 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 6.4794816414795 kt

The final result is:

12 km/h → 6.4794816414795 kt

We conclude that 12 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 6.4794816414795 knots:

12 kilometers per hour = 6.4794816414795 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.15433333333308 × 12 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 12 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.15433333333308 knots.

## Approximate result

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

12 km/h ≅ 6.479 kt

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