## 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 42.4 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 42.4 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

42.4 km/h → V_{(kt)}

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

V_{(kt)} = 42.4 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V_{(kt)} = 22.894168466561 kt

The final result is:

42.4 km/h → 22.894168466561 kt

We conclude that **42.4 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 22.894168466561 knots**:

42.4 kilometers per hour = 22.894168466561 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 knot is equal to 0.043679245282946 × 42.4 kilometers per hour**.

Another way is saying that *42.4 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.043679245282946 knots*.

## Approximate result

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

42.4 km/h ≅ 22.894 kt

An alternative is also that *one knot is approximately zero point zero four four times forty-two point four kilometers per hour*.
