Learn How to Convert Knots to Kilometers Per Second Using our Conversion Formula

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, 5kn = (5 × 0.000514) = 0.002572km/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 1kn. A kilometer per second is a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as km/sec, for example 1km/sec.
