## 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

## 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*.
