Calculating the difference between knots and kilometres per hour? Use this accurate speed converter from kn to km/h to help with any calculation. More here.

Used in completely different circumstances, **knots** and **kilometres per hour** are two units of speed useful for measuring the speed of different types of vehicles. While kilometres per hour are commonly found to measure the speed of cars and is a unit used on road signs over the world, knots are used for aircraft and ships to measure their speed in water and air.

## How to use the Converter from Knots to Km/h?

Enter into our **converter kn – km/h** above the number of knots you wish to convert and click “convert” for our unit calculator to present the equivalent in kilometres per hour. To do the opposite conversion, convert kilometres per hour to knots.

## Formula to Convert kn – km/h

When doing this **knots to kilometres per hour conversion** by hand, it might be useful to understand the mathematical equation used to calculate the difference between these two units of speed. As some examples, 7 kn = 12.96 km/h and 33 kn = 61.12 km/h

**[number of] knots x 1.852 = [number of] kilometres per hour **

## When to use knots?

The unit of speed known as **knots** is an important measurement used in meteorology but also in the air navigation and maritime industries. A knot is equivalent to one nautical mile exactly. Its main purpose is to calculate the speed of vessels relative to the fluids in which they travel, whether that is water or air. Above is our** knots to km/h calculator**.

## When to use km/h?

**Kilometres per hour** is the most common unit of speed that is used worldwide, found on road signs and in car speedometers. It has several different abbreviations such as km/h, the official one, kph, kmph and km/hr. In American English, this unit of speed is spelt as kilometers per hour instead.
