## 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 15.9 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 15.9 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

15.9 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 15.9 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 8.5853131749603 kt

The final result is:

15.9 km/h → 8.5853131749603 kt

We conclude that 15.9 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 8.5853131749603 knots:

15.9 kilometers per hour = 8.5853131749603 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.11647798742119 × 15.9 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 15.9 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.11647798742119 knots.

## Approximate result

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

15.9 km/h ≅ 8.585 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point one one six times fifteen point nine kilometers per hour.
