How to Convert Newtons to Millinewtons

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

millinewtons = newtons × 1,000

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

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

Newtons and millinewtons 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

Millinewtons

One millinewton is equal to 1/1,000 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 millinewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. Millinewtons can be abbreviated as mN; for example, 1 millinewton can be written as 1 mN.
