The knot is a unit of speed equal to one nautical mile per hour, exactly 1.852 km/h. The ISO standard symbol for the knot is kn. The knot is a non-SI unit. The knot is used in meteorology, and in maritime and air navigation. The speeds of vessels relative to the fluids in which they travel (boat speeds and air speeds) are measured in knots.

Kilometers per hour

The kilometre per hour (SI symbol: km/h; abbreviations: kph, kmph, km/hr) is a unit of speed, expressing the number of kilometres travelled in one hour. Internationally, km/h is the most commonly used unit of speed on traffic signs and road vehicle speedometers. The kilometre, a unit of length, first appeared in English in 1810, and the compound unit of speed "kilometers per hour" was in use in the US by 1866
