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 knot is also equal to 6076 feet per hour. The average speed of large passenger ships and tankers varies between 11 and 17 knots, but fast cargo ships can move with the speed up to 28 knots. Sometimes, the concepts of a knot and miles per hour are confused. Remember that the knot is one nautical mile (1852 meters) per hour, and the concept of a mile per hour which is extensively used in the UK or North America is a standard miles (1609 meters) per hour.

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

Miles per hour

Miles per hour (mph, mi/h, or MPH) is an Imperial unit of speed measurement, used in the United Kingdom, the United States, partially in Canada and a number of other countries of the world. It is interesting that in some countries like Samoa, Belize, the Bahamas, and some others, where both metric and Imperial systems are used, road signs indicating seed limits usually have two numbers, with one being in miles per hour and the other being in kilometers per hour. Apart of indicating road speed limits, the unit of miles per hour is used in aeronautics, sailing, as well as in sports to specify the speed of ball delivery in such sports as baseball, tennis, etc. Miles per hour unit symbol is mph, mi/h.

One mph is equal to 4.4704 × 10 -1 meters per second.

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

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

1 kn/h = 5.144444 * 10-1 meter per second (m/s)
1 mph = 4.4704 * 10-1 m/s
1 mph = 0.44704 m/s

1 m/s = (1/0.44704) mph
1 m/s = 2.2369362920544 mph

1 kn/h = 5.144444 * 10-1 * 2.2369362920544 mph
1 kn/h = 1.1507793486042 mph
