Kilometers per hour

Kilometer per hour (kph, kmh) is a unit of metric speed extensively used in Europe, most of the countries of Asia and Africa, occasionally in Australia, etc. An object which travels with the speed of 1 kilometer per hour moves exactly 1 kilometer every hour. This unit is usually used for indicating car speed and specifying its limit at road signs. Comparing to other common metric speed units like meters per second, kilometer per hour is better perceived by people, especially car drivers (that's because time is rather counted in hours than in seconds, and most of the car movement related distances are rather measured in kilometers than in meters). Kilometers per hour unit symbol is kph, km/h, kmh.

One kilometer per hour is close to very slow walking speed. The average human walking speed is estimated to be close to 5 kilometers per hour, and the average speed of road cyclist in the city may vary between 10 and 15 km/h. A drone fly speed is generally close to 40 km/h. In most of the countries in Europe, the road speed limit in the city varies between 40 km/h and 60 km/h. Bugatti Veyron, one of the world's speediest cars designed by the Volkswagen Group, can reach the top speed of 408.84 km/h. TGV POS, a high speed train built by Alstom France, can reach maximum speed of 574.8 km/h. The average speed of a jet plane is close to 900 km/h.

One kph is equal to 2.77777778 × 10 -1 meters per second.

Knot (nautical miles) per hour

The knot is a unit of speed measurement, extensively used in aeronautics, navy and maritime navigation, meteorology, and some other related fields. The knot is equal to one nautical mile (which is close to 1.852 kilometers) per hour. Initially, the nautical mile was defined as the length of the arc of the great circle on the surface of the globe with the size of one angular minute. Thus, the travel of one nautical mile along the meridian roughly corresponds to the movement of geographical coordinates of one minute of latitude. The knot as a unit is not recognized by the International systems of Units, but it is recommended to be used for various scientific purposes. Knot (nautical miles) per hour unit symbol is kn/h, kt/h.

One kn/h is equal to 5.144444 × 10 -1 meters per second.

How to Calculate Kilometers per hour to Knot (nautical miles) per hour

We calculate the base unit of speed equivalent of kilometers per hour and Knot (nautical miles) per hour with the unit factor of meter per second (m/s).

1 kph = 2.77777778 * 10-1 meter per second (m/s)
1 kn/h = 5.144444 * 10-1 m/s
1 kn/h = 0.5144444 m/s

1 m/s = (1/0.5144444) kn/h
1 m/s = 1.9438446603753 kn/h

1 kph = 2.77777778 * 10-1 * 1.9438446603753 kn/h
1 kph = 0.53995685053623 kn/h
