How to Convert Dynes to Newtons

To convert a dyne measurement to a newton measurement, divide the force by the conversion ratio.

Since one newton is equal to 100,000 dynes, you can use this simple formula to convert:

newtons = dynes ÷ 100,000

The force in newtons is equal to the dynes divided by 100,000.

For example, here's how to convert 50,000 dynes to newtons using the formula above.
50,000 dyn = (50,000 ÷ 100,000) = 0.5 N

Dynes and newtons are both units used to measure force. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


The dyne is the force needed to move one gram of mass at a rate of one centimeter per second squared.

The dyne is a centimeter-gram-second (CGS) unit of force. Dynes can be abbreviated as dyn; for example, 1 dyne can be written as 1 dyn.

Dynes can be expressed using the formula: 1 dyn = 1 gcm / s2


The newton is a unit to for measuring force equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.[1]

The newton is the SI derived unit for force in the metric system. Newtons can be abbreviated as N; for example, 1 newton can be written as 1 N.

Newtons can be expressed using the formula: 1 N = 1 kgm / s2
