**Knots** ( **kn** for short) are a measure of speed in aviation and shipping. Knots are based on the nautical mile or nautical mile. A nautical mile is exactly 1,852 meters long. One knot is therefore one nautical mile per hour - the equivalent of 1.852 km/h. Conversely, 1 km/h is 0.5399568035 knots.

The conversion from kilometers per hour (km/h) to knots is particularly important in shipping and aviation, as these industries often use knots as a measure of speed. A knot is defined as one nautical mile per hour and corresponds to approximately 1.852 kilometers per hour.

So if you want to convert a speed from kilometers per hour to knots, divide the number of kilometers per hour by 1.852.

**Formula: Knots = km/h / 1.852**

Conversely, if you want to convert a speed from knots to kilometers per hour, multiply the number of knots by 1.852.

**Formula: km/h = knots * 1.852**

Please note that these conversions are specific to knots, which are based on the nautical mile. This differs from land-based speed measures such as kilometers per hour or miles per hour.
