How to Convert Dynes to Newtons

To convert a measurement in dynes to a measurement in newtons, divide the force by the following conversion ratio: 100,000 dynes/newton.

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 force in dynes divided by 100,000.

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

What Is a Dyne?

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

What Is a Newton?

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
