## 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 8.5 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 8.5 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

8.5 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 8.5 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 4.5896328293813 kt

The final result is:

8.5 km/h → 4.5896328293813 kt

We conclude that 8.5 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 4.5896328293813 knots:

8.5 kilometers per hour = 4.5896328293813 knots

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.21788235294081 × 8.5 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 8.5 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.21788235294081 knots.

## Approximate result

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

8.5 km/h ≅ 4.59 kt

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