## What is the Formula to convert Kilometer/second to Knot?

The formula to convert given speed from Kilometer/second to Knot is:

Speed_{(Knot)} = Speed_{(Kilometer/second)} × 1.9438444924 / 0.001

Substitute the given value of speed in kilometer/second, i.e., Speed_{(Kilometer/second)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the speed in knot, i.e., Speed_{(Knot)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### A spacecraft travels at a speed of 8 kilometers per second.

Convert this speed from kilometers per second to Knot.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The speed in kilometer/second is:

Speed_{(Kilometer/second)} = 8

**Formula:**

The formula to convert speed from kilometer/second to knot is:

Speed_{(Knot)} = Speed_{(Kilometer/second)} × 1.9438444924 / 0.001

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Speed _{(Kilometer/second)} = 8** in the above formula.

Speed_{(Knot)} = 8 × 1.9438444924 / 0.001

Speed_{(Knot)} = 15550.7559

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **8 km/s** is equal to **15550.7559 kt**.

The speed is **15550.7559 kt**, in knot.

### A meteor enters the Earth's atmosphere at 15 kilometers per second.

Convert this speed from kilometers per second to Knot.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The speed in kilometer/second is:

Speed_{(Kilometer/second)} = 15

**Formula:**

The formula to convert speed from kilometer/second to knot is:

Speed_{(Knot)} = Speed_{(Kilometer/second)} × 1.9438444924 / 0.001

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Speed _{(Kilometer/second)} = 15** in the above formula.

Speed_{(Knot)} = 15 × 1.9438444924 / 0.001

Speed_{(Knot)} = 29157.6674

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **15 km/s** is equal to **29157.6674 kt**.

The speed is **29157.6674 kt**, in knot.

## Kilometer/second

The kilometer per second (km/s) is a unit of speed that represents how many kilometers an object travels in one second. This unit is often used in astronomy and space science to describe the velocities of celestial bodies and spacecraft, as these speeds are far beyond those encountered in everyday life.

## Knot

The knot (kn) is a unit of speed equal to one nautical mile per hour. It is commonly used in maritime and aviation contexts to express the speed of ships and aircraft. The knot is an important unit in navigation, where distances are often measured in nautical miles.
