## 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:

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.

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 kgms^{2}

## 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.
