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 488 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 488 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

488 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 488 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 263.49892008683 kt

The final result is:

488 km/h → 263.49892008683 kt

We conclude that 488 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 263.49892008683 knots:

488 kilometers per hour = 263.49892008683 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0037950819672068 × 488 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 488 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0037950819672068 knots.

Approximate result

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

488 km/h ≅ 263.499 kt

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