How to convert knots to yards per minute (kn, kt to yd/m)
The formula for converting knots to yards per minute is: yd/m = kn, kt × 33.756197142. To calculate the knot (std) value in yards per minute first substitute the knot (std) value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 knot (std) in yards per minute we follow these steps:
yd/m = kn, kt × 33.756197142
yd/m = 1 × 33.756197142
yd/m = 33.756197142
In other words, 1 knot (std) is equal to 33.756197142 yards per minute.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 8 knots to yards per minute is:
- Understand the conversion formula: yd/m = kn, kt × 33.756197142
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 8 for kn, kt so the formula becomes: yd/m = 8 × 33.756197142
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 8 × 33.756197142 = 270.049577136 yd/m
In summary, 8 knots is equal to 270.049577136 yards per minute.
Converting yards per minute to knots
In order to convert the other way around i.e. yards per minute to knots, you would use the following formula: kn, kt = yd/m × 0.0296241900648158. To convert yards per minute to knots first substitute the yard per minute value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 yard per minute in knots we follow these steps:
kn, kt = yd/m × 0.0296241900648158
kn, kt = 1 × 0.0296241900648158
kn, kt = 0.0296241900648158
Or in other words, 1 yard per minute is equal to 0.0296241900648158 knots.
