## About knot

The **knot** is a non-SI unit of speed equal to one international nautical mile per hour or approximately 0.514444 meters per second (1 kn = 0.514444 m/s), the derived unit of speed in the International System of Units (SI).

One knot (kn) is also equal to about 1.852 kilometers per hour (km/h), or 1.150779 miles per hour (mph) or 1.68781 feet per second (ft/s).

The knot is used worldwide in nautical and air navigation and in meteorology.
