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 85 kilometers per hour into knots we have to multiply 85 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

85 km/h → V(kt)

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

V(kt) = 85 km/h × 0.53995680345662 kt

V(kt) = 45.896328293813 kt

The final result is:

85 km/h → 45.896328293813 kt

We conclude that 85 kilometers per hour is equivalent to 45.896328293813 knots:

85 kilometers per hour = 45.896328293813 knots

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 knot is equal to 0.021788235294081 × 85 kilometers per hour.

Another way is saying that 85 kilometers per hour is equal to 1 ÷ 0.021788235294081 knots.

Approximate result

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

85 km/h ≅ 45.896 kt

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