How to convert knots to miles per second (kn, kt to mi/s)
The formula for converting knots to miles per second is: mi/s = kn, kt × 0.000319661. To calculate the knot (std) value in miles per second first substitute the knot (std) value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 knot (std) in miles per second we follow these steps:
mi/s = kn, kt × 0.000319661
mi/s = 1 × 0.000319661
mi/s = 0.000319661
In other words, 1 knot (std) is equal to 0.000319661 miles per second.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 8 knots to miles per second is:
- Understand the conversion formula: mi/s = kn, kt × 0.000319661
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 8 for kn, kt so the formula becomes: mi/s = 8 × 0.000319661
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 8 × 0.000319661 = 0.002557288 mi/s
In summary, 8 knots is equal to 0.002557288 miles per second.
Converting miles per second to knots
In order to convert the other way around i.e. miles per second to knots, you would use the following formula: kn, kt = mi/s × 3128.31405770488. To convert miles per second to knots first substitute the mile per second value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 mile per second in knots we follow these steps:
kn, kt = mi/s × 3128.31405770488
kn, kt = 1 × 3128.31405770488
kn, kt = 3128.31405770488
Or in other words, 1 mile per second is equal to 3128.31405770488 knots.
