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 7.9 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 7.9 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

7.9 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 7.9 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 4.2656587473073 kt

The final result is:

7.9 km/h → 4.2656587473073 kt

We conclude that 7.9 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 4.2656587473073 knots:

7.9 kilometers per hour = 4.2656587473073 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.23443037974645 × 7.9 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 7.9 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.23443037974645 knots.

Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that seven point nine kilometers per hour is approximately four point two six six knots:

7.9 km/h ≅ 4.266 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point two three four times seven point nine kilometers per hour.
