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 30 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 30 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

30 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 30 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 16.198704103699 kt

The final result is:

30 km/h → 16.198704103699 kt

We conclude that 30 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 16.198704103699 knots:

30 kilometers per hour = 16.198704103699 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.061733333333231 × 30 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 30 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.061733333333231 knots.

Approximate result

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

30 km/h ≅ 16.199 kt

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