## 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 588 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 588 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

588 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 588 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 317.49460043249 kt

The final result is:

588 km/h → 317.49460043249 kt

We conclude that 588 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 317.49460043249 knots:

588 kilometers per hour = 317.49460043249 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.0031496598639403 × 588 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 588 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0031496598639403 knots.

## Approximate result

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

588 km/h ≅ 317.495 kt

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