## 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:

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.

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 kgms^{2}

## 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 *g _{F}*. For example, 1 gram-force can be written as 1 gf or 1 g

_{F}.

Gram-force can be expressed using the formula:
1 gf = 9.80665 gms^{2}
