## How to Convert Newtons to Kilonewtons

To convert a measurement in newtons to a measurement in kilonewtons, divide the force by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 newtons/kilonewton.

Since one kilonewton is equal to 1,000 newtons, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilonewtons = newtons ÷ 1,000

The force in kilonewtons is equal to the force in newtons divided by 1,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5,000 newtons to kilonewtons using the formula above.

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

## What Is a Newton?

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 kgm / s^{2}

## What Is a Kilonewton?

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 thousands, or 10^{3}. Kilonewtons can be abbreviated as *kN*; for example, 1 kilonewton can be written as 1 kN.
