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 3 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 3 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

3 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 3 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 1.6198704103699 kt

The final result is:

3 km/h → 1.6198704103699 kt

We conclude that 3 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 1.6198704103699 knots:

3 kilometers per hour = 1.6198704103699 knots

3 kilometers per hour is equal to 1.62 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.61733333333231 × 3 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 3 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.61733333333231 knots.

Approximate result

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

3 km/h ≅ 1.62 kt

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