## How to convert kilometers per hour to knots (km/h to kn, kt)

The formula for converting kilometers per hour to knots is: kn, kt = km/h × 0.5399568035. To calculate the kilometer per hour value in knots first substitute the kilometer per hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilometer per hour in knots we follow these steps:

kn, kt = km/h × 0.5399568035

kn, kt = 1 × 0.5399568035

kn, kt = 0.5399568035

In other words, 1 kilometer per hour is equal to 0.5399568035 knots.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 4 kilometers per hour to knots is:

- Understand the conversion formula: kn, kt = km/h × 0.5399568035
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 4 for km/h so the formula becomes: kn, kt = 4 × 0.5399568035
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 4 × 0.5399568035 = 2.159827214 kn, kt

In summary, 4 kilometers per hour is equal to 2.159827214 knots.

## Converting knots to kilometers per hour

In order to convert the other way around i.e. knots to kilometers per hour, you would use the following formula: km/h = kn, kt × 1.85199999984814. To convert knots to kilometers per hour first substitute the knot (std) value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 knot (std) in kilometers per hour we follow these steps:

km/h = kn, kt × 1.85199999984814

km/h = 1 × 1.85199999984814

km/h = 1.85199999984814

Or in other words, 1 knot (std) is equal to 1.85199999984814 kilometers per hour.
