How to Convert Kilometers Per Second to Knots Using an Easy Conversion Formula

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

Convert kilometers per second to knots with this simple formula:

knots = kilometers per second × 1,943.844492

Converting a kilometer per second speed measurement to a knot measurement involves multiplying your speed by the conversion ratio to find the result. A kilometer per second is equal to 1,943.844492 knots, so to convert simply multiply by 1,943.844492.

For example:
5 km/sec = (5 × 1,943.844492) = 9,719.222462 kn
