How to convert knots to meters per hour (kn, kt to m/h)
The formula for converting knots to meters per hour is: m/h = kn, kt × 1852. To calculate the knot (std) value in meters per hour first substitute the knot (std) value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 knot (std) in meters per hour we follow these steps:
m/h = kn, kt × 1852
m/h = 1 × 1852
m/h = 1852
In other words, 1 knot (std) is equal to 1852 meters per hour.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 5 knots to meters per hour is:
- Understand the conversion formula: m/h = kn, kt × 1852
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for kn, kt so the formula becomes: m/h = 5 × 1852
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 1852 = 9260 m/h
In summary, 5 knots is equal to 9260 meters per hour.
Converting meters per hour to knots
In order to convert the other way around i.e. meters per hour to knots, you would use the following formula: kn, kt = m/h × 0.000539956803455724. To convert meters per hour to knots first substitute the meter per hour value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 meter per hour in knots we follow these steps:
kn, kt = m/h × 0.000539956803455724
kn, kt = 1 × 0.000539956803455724
kn, kt = 0.000539956803455724
Or in other words, 1 meter per hour is equal to 0.000539956803455724 knots.
