## How to Convert Speed of Sound to Knots

To convert a measurement in speed of sound to a measurement in knots, multiply the speed by the following conversion ratio: 666.738661 knots/speed of sound.

Since one speed of sound is equal to 666.738661 knots, you can use this simple formula to convert:

knots = speed of sound × 666.738661

The speed in knots is equal to the speed in speed of sound multiplied by 666.738661.

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

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

## What Is the Speed of Sound?

The speed of sound is the distance a sound wave travels through an elastic medium.
The speed of sound through air at 20 °C is equal to 343 meters per second,^{[1]} or roughly 767 miles per hour.

Speed of sound can be abbreviated as *sound*; for example, 1 speed of sound can be written as 1 sound.
