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 55 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 55 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

55 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 55 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 29.697624190114 kt

The final result is:

55 km/h → 29.697624190114 kt

We conclude that 55 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 29.697624190114 knots:

55 kilometers per hour = 29.697624190114 knots

55 kilometers per hour is equal to 29.698 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.033672727272671 × 55 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 55 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.033672727272671 knots.

Approximate result

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

55 km/h ≅ 29.698 kt

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