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 427 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 427 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

427 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 427 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 230.56155507598 kt

The final result is:

427 km/h → 230.56155507598 kt

We conclude that 427 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 230.56155507598 knots:

427 kilometers per hour = 230.56155507598 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0043372365339506 × 427 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 427 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0043372365339506 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that four hundred twenty-seven kilometers per hour is approximately two hundred thirty point five six two knots:

427 km/h ≅ 230.562 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero zero four times four hundred twenty-seven kilometers per hour.
