Miles to Nautical Miles Converter
Miles, specifically statute miles, are used to measure land distances. Nautical miles, on the other hand, are used to measure air, sea, and space distances.
To convert miles to nautical miles, we need to make a Miles to Nautical Miles Formula, and to do that, we start with the following facts:
One nautical mile is exactly 1852 meters.
One mile is exactly 1609.344 meters.
That means that one mile is equal to 1609.344/1852 nautical miles, which can be simplified to 50292/57875, and we can make the following Miles to Nautical Miles Formula:
miles × (50292/57875) = nautical miles
Based on the formula we made above, we created the Miles to Nautical Miles Converter below. Please enter your length of miles (statute) to have it converted to nautical miles.
