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 272 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 272 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

272 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 272 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 146.8682505402 kt

The final result is:

272 km/h → 146.8682505402 kt

We conclude that 272 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 146.8682505402 knots:

272 kilometers per hour = 146.8682505402 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0068088235294004 × 272 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 272 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0068088235294004 knots.

Approximate result

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

272 km/h ≅ 146.868 kt

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