## 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 72.5 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 72.5 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

72.5 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 72.5 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 39.146868250605 kt

The final result is:

72.5 km/h → 39.146868250605 kt

We conclude that 72.5 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 39.146868250605 knots:

72.5 kilometers per hour = 39.146868250605 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.025544827586164 × 72.5 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 72.5 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.025544827586164 knots.

## Approximate result

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

72.5 km/h ≅ 39.147 kt

An alternative is also that one knot is approximately zero point zero two six times seventy-two point five kilometers per hour.
