How to Convert Newtons to Micronewtons

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

micronewtons = newtons × 1,000,000

The force in micronewtons is equal to the newtons multiplied by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 newtons to micronewtons using the formula above.
5 N = (5 × 1,000,000) = 5,000,000 μN

Newtons and micronewtons 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

Micronewtons

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

The micronewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Micronewtons can be abbreviated as μN; for example, 1 micronewton can be written as 1 μN.
