How to Convert Kilometers per Second to Knots
To convert a measurement in kilometers per second to a measurement in knots, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 1,943.844492 knots/kilometer per second.
Since one kilometer per second is equal to 1,943.844492 knots, you can use this simple formula to convert:
knots = kilometers per second × 1,943.844492
The speed in knots is equal to the speed in kilometers per second multiplied by 1,943.844492.
Kilometers per second and knots are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What Are Kilometers per Second?
The kilometer per second, or kilometre per second, is an SI unit of speed in the metric system. Kilometers per second can be abbreviated as km/s, and are also sometimes abbreviated as km/sec. For example, 1 kilometer per second can be written as 1 km/s or 1 km/sec.
In the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units. For example, km/s is expressing a change in length or distance relative to a change in time.
Kilometers per second can be expressed using the formula:
vkm/s = dkm / tsec
The velocity in kilometers per second is equal to the distance in kilometers divided by time in seconds.
