## 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 48 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 48 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

48 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 48 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 25.917926565918 kt

The final result is:

48 km/h → 25.917926565918 kt

We conclude that 48 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 25.917926565918 knots:

48 kilometers per hour = 25.917926565918 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.038583333333269 × 48 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 48 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.038583333333269 knots.

## Approximate result

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

48 km/h ≅ 25.918 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero three nine times forty-eight kilometers per hour.
