## 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 31.8 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 31.8 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

31.8 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 31.8 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 17.170626349921 kt

The final result is:

31.8 km/h → 17.170626349921 kt

We conclude that 31.8 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 17.170626349921 knots:

31.8 kilometers per hour = 17.170626349921 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.058238993710595 × 31.8 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 31.8 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.058238993710595 knots.

## Approximate result

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

31.8 km/h ≅ 17.171 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero five eight times thirty-one point eight kilometers per hour.
