How to Convert Newtons to Kilonewtons

To convert a newton measurement to a kilonewton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One newton is equal to 0.001 kilonewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilonewtons = newtons × 0.001

The force in kilonewtons is equal to the newtons multiplied by 0.001.

For example, here's how to convert 5 newtons to kilonewtons using the formula above.
5 N = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 kN

Newtons and kilonewtons 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.

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

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.
