## What is the Formula to convert Kilometers to Nautical miles (International)?

The formula to convert given length from Kilometers to Nautical miles (International) is:

Length_{(Nautical miles (International))} = Length_{(Kilometers)} / 1.8520000118528

Substitute the given value of length in kilometers, i.e., Length_{(Kilometers)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the length in nautical miles (international), i.e., Length_{(Nautical miles (International))}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a high-end electric car has a maximum range of 400 kilometers on a single charge.

Convert this range from kilometers to Nautical miles (International).

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 400

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from kilometers to nautical miles (international) is:

Length_{(Nautical miles (International))} = Length_{(Kilometers)} / 1.8520000118528

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Kilometers)} = 400** in the above formula.

Length_{(Nautical miles (International))} = 400 / 1.8520000118528

Length_{(Nautical miles (International))} = 215.9827

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **400 km** is equal to **215.9827 nmi**.

The length is **215.9827 nmi**, in nautical miles (international).

### Consider that a private helicopter has a flight range of 150 kilometers.

Convert this range from kilometers to Nautical miles (International).

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 150

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from kilometers to nautical miles (international) is:

Length_{(Nautical miles (International))} = Length_{(Kilometers)} / 1.8520000118528

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Kilometers)} = 150** in the above formula.

Length_{(Nautical miles (International))} = 150 / 1.8520000118528

Length_{(Nautical miles (International))} = 80.9935

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **150 km** is equal to **80.9935 nmi**.

The length is **80.9935 nmi**, in nautical miles (international).

## Kilometers

A kilometer (km) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI), equal to 0.6214 miles. One kilometer is one thousand meters.

The prefix "kilo-" means one thousand. A kilometer is defined by 1000 times the distance light travels in 1/299,792,458 seconds. This definition may change, but a kilometer will always be one thousand meters.

Kilometers are used to measure distances on land in most countries. However, the United States and the United Kingdom still often use miles. The UK has adopted the metric system, but miles are still used on road signs.

## Nautical miles (International)

A nautical mile (international) is a unit of length used in maritime and aviation contexts. One nautical mile is equivalent to 1,852 meters or approximately 1.15078 miles.

The nautical mile is defined based on the Earth's circumference and is equal to one minute of latitude.

Nautical miles are used worldwide for navigation at sea and in the air. They are particularly important for charting courses and distances in maritime and aviation industries, ensuring consistency and accuracy in navigation.
