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

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

Convert knots to kilometers per second with this simple formula:

kilometers per second = knots × 0.000514

Converting a knot speed measurement to a kilometer per second measurement involves multiplying your speed by the conversion ratio to find the result. A knot is equal to 0.000514 kilometers per second, so to convert simply multiply by 0.000514.

For example:
5 kn = (5 × 0.000514) = 0.002572 km/sec

Knots and kilometers per second are both units used to measure speed. Learn more about speed and find more speed measurement conversion calculators. A knot is an imperial measurement and can be abbreviated as kn, for example 1 kn. A kilometer per second is a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as km/sec, for example 1 km/sec.
