## How to Convert Mach Number to Knots

To convert a Mach measurement to a knot measurement, multiply the Mach number by the conversion ratio. Mach 1 is equal to 666.738661 knots, so use this simple formula to convert:

The speed in knots is equal to the Mach number multiplied by 666.738661.

**For example,**here's how to convert Mach 2 to knots using the formula above.

Mach number and knots are both units used to measure speed. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Mach Number

Mach, sometimes also referred to as a Mach number, is the ratio of the speed of an object to the speed of sound.

Mach can be abbreviated as M, and is also sometimes abbreviated as Ma. For example, Mach 1 can be written as 1 M or 1 Ma.

Although Mach can be abbreviated *M* or *Ma*, the Mach number is typically expressed with the number after the unit name.
For example, the expression *Mach 3* is preferred rather than *3 Machs* or *3 M*.

The speed is classified as either subsonic, transonic, supersonic, or hypersonic depending on the Mach number.

Speed Classification | Mach Number |
---|---|

Subsonic | Mach < 1.0 |

Transonic | Mach = 1.0 |

Supersonic | Mach > 1.0 |

Hypersonic | Mach > 5.0 |

## Knots

One knot is equal to a speed of one nautical mile per hour, 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.
