How to convert miles per second to knots (mi/s to kn, kt)
The formula for converting miles per second to knots is: kn, kt = mi/s × 3128.31405770488. To calculate the mile per second value in knots first substitute the mile per second value into the preceding formula, and then perform 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
In other words, 1 mile per second is equal to 3128.31405770488 knots.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 7 miles per second to knots is:
- Understand the conversion formula: kn, kt = mi/s × 3128.31405770488
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 7 for mi/s so the formula becomes: kn, kt = 7 × 3128.31405770488
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 7 × 3128.31405770488 = 21898.19840393416 kn, kt
In summary, 7 miles per second is equal to 21898.19840393416 knots.
Converting knots to miles per second
In order to convert the other way around i.e. knots to miles per second, you would use the following formula: mi/s = kn, kt × 0.000319661. To convert knots to miles per second 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 second we follow these steps:
mi/s = kn, kt × 0.000319661
mi/s = 1 × 0.000319661
mi/s = 0.000319661
Or in other words, 1 knot (std) is equal to 0.000319661 miles per second.
