## How to Convert Speed of Light to Knots

To convert a measurement in speed of light to a measurement in knots, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 582,749,918.35858 knots/speed of light.

Since one speed of light is equal to 582,749,918.35858 knots, you can use this simple formula to convert:

knots = speed of light × 582,749,918.35858

The speed in knots is equal to the speed in speed of light multiplied by 582,749,918.35858.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 speed of light to knots using the formula above.

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

## 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.
