# Convert km/h to knots

 Speed (in km/h or kph): Speed (in knots):
 The calculator allows you to convert kph to knots (or nautical miles). Perform the reverse calculation: convert knots to kph
 1 km/h = 0.539957 knots (approximately equal to)1 knot = 1.852 km/h

## Example

We are going to convert a speed of 50 km/h in knots.
Speed = 50 km/h
1 km/h = 0.539957 knots
Speed = 50 km/h = 50 x 0.539957 = 27 knots

## Km/h to knots chart

Convert km/h to knots:

1 km/h = 0.54 knots
10 km/h = 5.4 knots
20 km/h = 10.8 knots
30 km/h = 16.2 knots
40 km/h = 21.6 knots
50 km/h = 27 knots
60 km/h = 32.4 knots
70 km/h = 37.8 knots
80 km/h = 43.2 knots
90 km/h = 48.6 knots
100 km/h = 54 knots

The knot is the unit of measurement for boat speed.
Knots correspond to the speed of planes and boats.
1 knot = 1 nautical mile per hour = 6076 feet per hour
1 mph = 1 mile per hour = 5280 feet per hour

To convert a kilometer per hour measurement to a knot measurement, multiply the speed by 0.539957 (approximately).

## To go further

Knot is defined as one nautical mile per hour and is used to measure speed. In the aviation and nautical worlds, knots are oftentimes used in place of miles per hour (mph) or kilometers per hour (kph) because they are easier to navigate with. A knot is a unit of speed that ties directly into the global latitude and longitude coordinate system.

A nautical mile is the measure of distance used for sea and air navigation. It is used to measure the distance traveled through the water. The nautical mile is based on latitude and longitude.
