How to Convert Knots to Speed Of Light

Speedometers are used in vehicles to measure speed

Convert knots to speed of light with this simple formula:

speed of light = knots × 1.716E-9

Converting a knot speed measurement to a speed of light measurement involves multiplying the speed by the conversion ratio to find the result. One knot is equal to 1.716E-9 speed of light, so to convert simply multiply by 1.716E-9.

For example:
5 kn = (5 × 1.716E-9) = 8.58E-9 speed of light
