How to Convert Newtons to Meganewtons

To convert a newton measurement to a meganewton measurement, divide the force by the conversion ratio. One meganewton is equal to 1,000,000 newtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

meganewtons = newtons ÷ 1,000,000

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

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 newtons to meganewtons using the formula above.
5,000,000 N = (5,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 MN

Newtons and meganewtons 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

Meganewtons

One meganewton is equal to 1,000,000 newtons, which are equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.

The meganewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 106. Meganewtons can be abbreviated as MN, for example 1 meganewton can be written as 1 MN.
