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 20 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 20 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

20 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 20 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 10.799136069132 kt

The final result is:

20 km/h → 10.799136069132 kt

We conclude that 20 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 10.799136069132 knots:

20 kilometers per hour = 10.799136069132 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.092599999999846 × 20 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 20 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.092599999999846 knots.

Approximate result

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

20 km/h ≅ 10.799 kt

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