# Convert knot to inch / minute

Learn how to convert 1 knot to inch / minute step by step.

## Calculation Breakdown

Set up the equation
$$1.0\left(knot\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(\dfrac{inch}{minute}\right)$$
Define the base values of the selected units in relation to the SI unit $$\left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)$$
$$\text{Left side: 1.0 } \left(knot\right) = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{1852.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}\left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{1852.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}\left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}$$
$$\text{Right side: 1.0 } \left(\dfrac{inch}{minute}\right) = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0}\left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0}\left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}$$
Insert known values into the conversion equation to determine $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$$1.0\left(knot\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(\dfrac{inch}{minute}\right)$$
$$\text{Insert known values } =>$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{1852.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}} \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0}}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{second}\right)}$$
$$\text{Or}$$
$$1.0 \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{1852.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0}} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}$$
$$\text{Cancel SI units}$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{1852.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s}\right)}}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$\dfrac{1852.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0}$$
Switch sides
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0} = \dfrac{1852.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}}$$
Isolate $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
Multiply both sides by $$\left(\dfrac{60.0}{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}\right)$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}{60.0} \times \dfrac{60.0}{2.54 \times 10^{-2}} = \dfrac{1852.0}{3.6 \times 10^{3}} \times \dfrac{60.0}{2.54 \times 10^{-2}}$$
$$\text{Cancel}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{{\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{2.54}} \times {\color{rgb(99,194,222)} \cancel{10^{-2}}} \times {\color{rgb(166,218,227)} \cancel{60.0}}}{{\color{rgb(166,218,227)} \cancel{60.0}} \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{2.54}} \times {\color{rgb(99,194,222)} \cancel{10^{-2}}}} = \dfrac{1852.0 \times 60.0}{3.6 \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancelto{10}{10^{3}}} \times 2.54 \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{10^{-2}}}}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{1852.0 \times 60.0}{3.6 \times 10.0 \times 2.54}$$
Solve $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\approx1215.2230971\approx1.2152 \times 10^{3}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$1.0\left(knot\right)\approx{\color{rgb(20,165,174)} 1.2152 \times 10^{3}}\left(\dfrac{inch}{minute}\right)$$
