Enter the total speed (knots) and the travel time (hrs) into the Distance From Knots Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Distance From Knots. 

Distance From Knots Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Distance From Knots. 

Dk = SK * 1.15* TT
  • Where Dk is the Distance From Knots (miles)
  • SK is the total speed (knots) 
  • TT is the travel time (hrs) 

To calculate the distance in miles from knots, multiply the speed in knots by 1.15, then multiply by the time in hours.

How to Calculate Distance From Knots?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Distance From Knots.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total speed (knots).
    • The total speed (knots) is given as: 15.
  2. Next, determine the travel time (hrs).
    • The travel time (hrs) is provided as: 20.
  3. Finally, calculate the Distance From Knots using the equation above: 

Dk = SK * 1.15* TT

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

Dk = 15 * 1.15* 20 = 354 (miles)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total speed (knots) = 30

travel time (hrs) = 40

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

Dk = SK * 1.15* TT = ?
