## How to Convert Newtons to Nanonewtons

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

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

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 newtons to nanonewtons using the formula above.

Newtons and nanonewtons 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}

## Nanonewtons

One nanonewton is equal to 1/1,000,000,000 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 nanonewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "nano" is the prefix for 10^{-9}. Nanonewtons can be abbreviated as *nN*; for example, 1 nanonewton can be written as 1 nN.
