## 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 253 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 253 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

253 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 253 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 136.60907127453 kt

The final result is:

253 km/h → 136.60907127453 kt

We conclude that 253 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 136.60907127453 knots:

253 kilometers per hour = 136.60907127453 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0073201581027546 × 253 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 253 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0073201581027546 knots.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that two hundred fifty-three kilometers per hour is approximately one hundred thirty-six point six zero nine knots:

253 km/h ≅ 136.609 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero zero seven times two hundred fifty-three kilometers per hour.
