How to Convert Knots to Speed of Light
To convert a measurement in knots to a measurement in speed of light, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 1.716E-9 speed of light/knot.
Since one knot is equal to 1.716E-9 speed of light, you can use this simple formula to convert:
speed of light = knots × 1.716E-9
The speed in speed of light is equal to the speed in knots multiplied by 1.716E-9.
Knots and speed of light are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What Is a Knot?
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 Is the Speed of Light?
The speed of light is equal to exactly 299,792,458 meters per second, or 670,616,629 miles per hour. The definition of the speed of light is actually derived from the most recent 1983 international definition of the meter.
Speed of light can be abbreviated as c; for example, 1 speed of light can be written as 1 c.
