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 27.2 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 27.2 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

27.2 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 27.2 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 14.68682505402 kt

The final result is:

27.2 km/h → 14.68682505402 kt

We conclude that 27.2 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 14.68682505402 knots:

27.2 kilometers per hour = 14.68682505402 knots

27.2 kilometers per hour is equal to 14.687 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.068088235294004 × 27.2 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 27.2 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.068088235294004 knots.

Approximate result

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

27.2 km/h ≅ 14.687 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero six eight times twenty-seven point two kilometers per hour.
