How to Convert Newtons to Gram-force

To convert a newton measurement to a gram-force measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One newton is equal to 101.97162 gram-force, so use this simple formula to convert:

gram-force = newtons × 101.97162

The force in gram-force is equal to the newtons multiplied by 101.97162.

For example, here's how to convert 5 newtons to gram-force using the formula above.
5 N = (5 × 101.97162) = 509.8581 gf

Newtons and gram-force 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 kgms2

Gram-force

Gram-force is a unit of force equal to the force needed to move one gram of mass at a rate of 9.80665 meters per second squared.

The gram-force is a non-SI metric unit for force. A gram-force is sometimes also referred to as a pond. Gram-force can be abbreviated as gf, and are also sometimes abbreviated as gF. For example, 1 gram-force can be written as 1 gf or 1 gF.

Gram-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 gf = 9.80665 gms2
