Calculate the time it takes to travel a certain distance in nautical miles based on a speed in knots. A knot is a unit of speed equal to one nautical mile per hour. The symbol used for a knot is kn or kt.
time = distance ÷ speed
one nautical mile (nmi) = 1.852 kilometres (km) one nautical mile (nmi) = 1.15077944802354 miles (mi) one knot = 1 nautical mile (nmi) per hour one knot (kn) = 0.514444444444444 metres per second (m/sec) one knot (kn) = 1.68780985710119 feet per second (ft/sec)
How long will it take to travel 4325 nautical miles at a speed of 45 knots?
Calculate the time in hours by dividing the nautical miles by the knots;
4325 ÷ 45 = 96.1
It will take 96.1 hours to travel the 4325 nautical miles at a speed of 45 knots. 96 hr - 6 min - 40 sec
