## How to Convert Knots to Miles per Hour

To convert a measurement in knots to a measurement in miles per hour, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 1.150779 miles per hour/knot.

Since one knot is equal to 1.150779 miles per hour, you can use this simple formula to convert:

miles per hour = knots × 1.150779

The speed in miles per hour is equal to the speed in knots multiplied by 1.150779.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 knots to miles per hour using the formula above.

Knots and miles per hour are both units used to measure speed. Calculate speed in knots or miles per hour using our speed calculator or keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## What Is a Knot?

One knot is equal to a speed of one nautical mile per hour,^{[1]} or one minute of latitude per hour.

Knots can be abbreviated as *kn*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *kt*. For example, 1 knot can be written as 1 kn or 1 kt.

## What Are Miles per Hour?

Miles per hour are a measurement of speed expressing the distance traveled in miles in one hour.^{[2]}

The mile per hour is a US customary and imperial unit of speed. Miles per hour can be abbreviated as *mph*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *mi/h* or *MPH*. For example, 1 mile per hour can be written as 1 mph, 1 mi/h, or 1 MPH.

Miles per hour can be expressed using the formula:

v_{mph} = d_{mi} / t_{hr}

The velocity in miles per hour is equal to the distance in miles divided by time in hours.
