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 240 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 240 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

240 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 240 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 129.58963282959 kt

The final result is:

240 km/h → 129.58963282959 kt

We conclude that 240 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 129.58963282959 knots:

240 kilometers per hour = 129.58963282959 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0077166666666538 × 240 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 240 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0077166666666538 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that two hundred forty kilometers per hour is approximately one hundred twenty-nine point five nine knots:

240 km/h ≅ 129.59 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero zero eight times two hundred forty kilometers per hour.
