## Knots to kph Converter

This calculator helps you convert knots to kilometers per hour (kph).

This online free **knots to kph converter **is a tool used to convert speed from **nautical miles per hour** (knots) to **kilometers per hour** (kph).

**Knots** are primarily used in naval and aviation contexts, while **kilometers per hour** is a more common unit of speed measurement in everyday life and land-based transportation.

- 8 knots = 14.816 kph
- 10 knots = 18.52 kph
- 15 knots = 27.78 kph
- 20 knots = 37.04 kph
- 22 knots = 40.744 kph
- 30 knots = 55.56 kph
- 40 knots = 74.08 kph
- 50 knots = 92.6 kph
- 100 knots = 185.2 kph
- 400 knots = 740.8 kph

## How do you Convert Knots to Kilometers Per Hour

To convert knots to kph, you need to multiply the speed in knots by the conversion factor of **1.852**.

The steps to convert knots to kph are as follows:

- Start with the
**speed in knots** - Multiply the knot value by
**1.852** - The result is the speed in
**kilometers per hour**

This conversion is based on the definition of a nautical mile, which is equal to **1.852 kilometers**. Since knots represent nautical miles per hour, multiplying by 1.852 gives us the equivalent speed in kilometers per hour.

## Knots to kph Conversion Formula

The formula for converting knots to kilometers per hour is:

**kph = knots × 1.852**

Where:

**kph**is the speed in kilometers per hour**knots**is the speed in nautical miles per hour

## What speed is 50 knots in mph?

Using our conversion formula:

**50 knots = 50 × 1.852 kph** **50 knots = 92.6 kph**

To convert this to mph, we can use the conversion factor of 1 mile = 1.60934 kilometers:

**92.6 kph ≈ 57.54 mph**

Therefore, **50 knots** is equivalent to approximately **92.6 kph** or **57.54 mph**.

## What speed is 30 knots in mph?

Let’s first convert 30 knots to kph and then to mph:

**30 knots = 30 × 1.852 kph** **30 knots = 55.56 kph**

Converting to mph:

**55.56 kph ≈ 34.52 mph**

**30 knots** is equivalent to approximately **55.56 kph** or **34.52 mph**.
