## How to convert knots to speed of sound (kn, kt to c)

The formula for converting knots to speed of sound is: c = kn, kt × 0.00149984. To calculate the knot (std) value in speed of sound first substitute the knot (std) value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 knot (std) in speed of sound we follow these steps:

c = kn, kt × 0.00149984

c = 1 × 0.00149984

c = 0.00149984

In other words, 1 knot (std) is equal to 0.00149984 speed of sound.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 4 knots to speed of sound is:

- Understand the conversion formula: c = kn, kt × 0.00149984
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 4 for kn, kt so the formula becomes: c = 4 × 0.00149984
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 4 × 0.00149984 = 0.00599936 c

In summary, 4 knots is equal to 0.00599936 speed of sound.

## Converting speed of sound to knots

In order to convert the other way around i.e. speed of sound to knots, you would use the following formula: kn, kt = c × 666.737785363772. To convert speed of sound to knots first substitute the speed of sound value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 speed of sound in knots we follow these steps:

kn, kt = c × 666.737785363772

kn, kt = 1 × 666.737785363772

kn, kt = 666.737785363772

Or in other words, 1 speed of sound is equal to 666.737785363772 knots.
