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 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 27 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 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 27 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 14.578833693329 kt

The final result is:

27 km/h → 14.578833693329 kt

We conclude that 27 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 14.578833693329 knots:

27 kilometers per hour = 14.578833693329 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.068592592592478 × 27 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 27 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.068592592592478 knots.

Approximate result

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

27 km/h ≅ 14.579 kt

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