## How to Convert Newtons to Dynes

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

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

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 newtons to dynes using the formula above.

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

## Newtons

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 kgms^{2}

## 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 gcms^{2}
