## 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 17 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 17 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

17 km/h → V_{(kt)}

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

V_{(kt)} = 17 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V_{(kt)} = 9.1792656587626 kt

The final result is:

17 km/h → 9.1792656587626 kt

We conclude that **17 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 9.1792656587626 knots**:

17 kilometers per hour = 9.1792656587626 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 knot is equal to 0.10894117647041 × 17 kilometers per hour**.

Another way is saying that *17 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.10894117647041 knots*.

## Approximate result

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

17 km/h ≅ 9.179 kt

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