## 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*.
