(Example: If you have been going at 5 knots for 50 mins then the distanced travelled = 5.0 x 50 divided by 60 = 4.2 nautical miles.) (Example: How long will it take to travel 4 miles at 5.5 knots? Time = 4 x 60 divided by 5.5 = 44 mins.) Example: At 5 knots (nautical miles per hour) your speed is 5.8 mph or 9.3 kph.

## How do you calculate travel time on a boat?

Below are all the variations of the distance, speed and time equation for calculating boating times.

- Distance = Speed x Time.
- Time = Distance/Speed.
- Speed = Distance/Time.

## How do you calculate time with knots and nautical miles?

Divide Speed into Distance and convert to Time. 13 nautical miles / 5 knots = 2.6 hours = 2h 36m. 1030 + 2h 36m = 1306 ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival). You are sailing at 5.5 knots.

## How do you calculate knots to time?

1. You are trying to find your speed so use the formula for speed: S = D/T. The distance to be covered is 10 miles and the time it will take is 2 hours. So, S = 10/2 = 5 knots.

## How do we calculate time?

To solve for speed or rate use the formula for speed, s = d/t which means speed equals distance divided by time. To solve for time use the formula for time, t = d/s which means time equals distance divided by speed.

## How long does it take to travel 1 mile by boat?

How long does it take to travel 1 mile by boat? If your boat is moving a mile an hour, it will take an hour for you to travel a mile. On the other hand, if you happen to be in one of those cigarette speed racing boats that can go as much as 60 miles per hour, it would only take you a minute to cover a mile.

## How many FT is a nautical mile?

US Nautical Miles to Feet table

US Nautical Miles | Feet |
---|---|

1 US nmi | 6076.12 ft |

2 US nmi | 12152.23 ft |

3 US nmi | 18228.35 ft |

4 US nmi | 24304.46 ft |

## How do you calculate ship speed in knots?

The number of knots passed multiplied by the distance between the knots and divided by 30 seconds told them that 1 knot is equal to 1.852 kilometers per hour or 1 knot is equal to 1 nautical mile per hour. This is how ‘knots’ originated and became a metric system to measure ships speed.

## How is shipping distance calculated?

The fixed relationship between distance, speed and time helps sailors calculate the distance the vessel is expected to travel in a given time. The formula being used by sailors is 60 x D = S x T which is expressed as 60D = ST.

## How many nautical miles in an hour?

One knot equals one nautical mile per hour, or roughly 1.15 statute mph.

## How long does it take to travel 1000 nautical miles?

1000 nautical miles (distance) divided by 8.5 (theoretical hull speed) = 117.65 hours, or 4.9 days.

## How do you calculate distance example?

Simply use the formula d = √((x_{2} – x_{1})^{2} + (y_{2} – y_{1})^{2}). In this formula, you subtract the two x coordinates, square the result, subtract the y coordinates, square the result, then add the two intermediate results together and take the square root to find the distance between your two points.
