## How to convert miles per hour to knots (mph to kn, kt)

The formula for converting miles per hour to knots is: kn, kt = mph × 0.868976241918425. To calculate the mile per hour value in knots first substitute the mile per hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 mile per hour in knots we follow these steps:

kn, kt = mph × 0.868976241918425

kn, kt = 1 × 0.868976241918425

kn, kt = 0.868976241918425

In other words, 1 mile per hour is equal to 0.868976241918425 knots.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 5 miles per hour to knots is:

- Understand the conversion formula: kn, kt = mph × 0.868976241918425
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for mph so the formula becomes: kn, kt = 5 × 0.868976241918425
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 0.868976241918425 = 4.344881209592125 kn, kt

In summary, 5 miles per hour is equal to 4.344881209592125 knots.

## Converting knots to miles per hour

In order to convert the other way around i.e. knots to miles per hour, you would use the following formula: mph = kn, kt × 1.150779448. To convert knots to miles 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 miles per hour we follow these steps:

mph = kn, kt × 1.150779448

mph = 1 × 1.150779448

mph = 1.150779448

Or in other words, 1 knot (std) is equal to 1.150779448 miles per hour.
