How to Convert Newtons to Micronewtons

To convert a measurement in newtons to a measurement in micronewtons, multiply the force by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 micronewtons/newton.

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

micronewtons = newtons × 1,000,000

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

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

How Many Micronewtons Are in a Newton?

There are 1,000,000 micronewtons in a newton, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 N = 1,000,000 μN

Newtons and micronewtons 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 / s2

What Is a Micronewton?

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 millionths, or 10-6. Micronewtons can be abbreviated as μN; for example, 1 micronewton can be written as 1 μN.
