Conversion formula

The conversion factor from knots to kilometers per hour is 1.8519999999969, which means that 1 knot is equal to 1.8519999999969 kilometers per hour:

1 kt = 1.8519999999969 km/h

To convert 3 knots into kilometers per hour we have to multiply 3 by the conversion factor in order to get the velocity amount from knots to kilometers per hour. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 kt → 1.8519999999969 km/h

3 kt → V(km/h)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the velocity V in kilometers per hour:

V(km/h) = 3 kt × 1.8519999999969 km/h

V(km/h) = 5.5559999999908 km/h

The final result is:

3 kt → 5.5559999999908 km/h

We conclude that 3 knots is equivalent to 5.5559999999908 kilometers per hour:

3 knots = 5.5559999999908 kilometers per hour

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilometer per hour is equal to 0.17998560115221 × 3 knots.

Another way is saying that 3 knots is equal to 1 ÷ 0.17998560115221 kilometers per hour.

Approximate result

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

3 kt ≅ 5.556 km/h

An alternative is also that one kilometer per hour is approximately zero point one eight times three knots.
