# Thread: How far is a "klick" exactly?

1. Well how far is it technically?

Maxx

2. 1 kilometer, I'm pretty sure of that.

3. lol
1000 meters or

.60 mile of a mile (might be off a wee bit)

so 60 miles is 100 klicks (kilometers)

4. The Term klick was created so that Miltary units could compress the time needed so send a message for fire support...

ie. "Fire support requested 3 klicks South-south-west of Grid Cord Charlie-Charlie-six-niner."

5. Alright, how fast is a knot?

6. 1 nautical mile per hour...

7. lmao, isn that kinda redundant? Nautical mile = Knot does it not?

On a serious note. 1 Knot= 1.2 milesMp/h or 1 Knot= 1.9KM/h

Also in order to convert KNots tom Miles you use this simple equation
KNOTS multiplied by 1.1507771555 = MPH
MPH divided by 1.150777155 = KNOTS

9. A knot is 1,852 km/h or one nautical mile per hour.

10. Grins.

To resolve British/American confusion about the above post.

1,852 km/h (European) = 1.852 km/h (British/American)

As a science teacher in an international school, I am always trying to get the European kids to use a '.' where they want to use a ',', and the Brits & Yanks to use a ' ' (gap) where they want to use a ','.
