## How to Convert Newtons to Millinewtons

To convert a newton measurement to a millinewton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio.

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

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.

### How Many Millinewtons are in a Newton?

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

1 N = 1,000 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 kgms^{2}

## 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.
