How to Convert Dynes to Kilonewtons

To convert a dyne measurement to a kilonewton measurement, divide the force by the conversion ratio. One kilonewton is equal to 100,000,000 dynes, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilonewtons = dynes ÷ 100,000,000

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

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

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

Dynes

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 gcms2

Kilonewtons

One kilonewton is equal to 1,000 newtons, which are equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.

The kilonewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilonewtons can be abbreviated as kN, for example 1 kilonewton can be written as 1 kN.
