## 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 497 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 497 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

497 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 497 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 268.35853131794 kt

The final result is:

497 km/h → 268.35853131794 kt

We conclude that 497 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 268.35853131794 knots:

497 kilometers per hour = 268.35853131794 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0037263581488872 × 497 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 497 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0037263581488872 knots.

## Approximate result

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

497 km/h ≅ 268.359 kt

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