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 503 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 503 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

503 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 503 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 271.59827213868 kt

The final result is:

503 km/h → 271.59827213868 kt

We conclude that 503 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 271.59827213868 knots:

503 kilometers per hour = 271.59827213868 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0036819085487016 × 503 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 503 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0036819085487016 knots.

Approximate result

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

503 km/h ≅ 271.598 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero zero four times five hundred three kilometers per hour.
