## How to Convert Newtons to Meganewtons

To convert a newton measurement to a meganewton measurement, divide the force by the conversion ratio.

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

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.

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 kgms^{2}

## 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 10^{6}. Meganewtons can be abbreviated as *MN*; for example, 1 meganewton can be written as 1 MN.
