## 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 40.5 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 40.5 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

40.5 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 40.5 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 21.868250539993 kt

The final result is:

40.5 km/h → 21.868250539993 kt

We conclude that 40.5 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 21.868250539993 knots:

40.5 kilometers per hour = 21.868250539993 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.045728395061652 × 40.5 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 40.5 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.045728395061652 knots.

## Approximate result

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

40.5 km/h ≅ 21.868 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero four six times forty point five kilometers per hour.
