What Is Kilogram-Force?

Kilogram-force is a unit used to measure force.

The kilogram-force is a non-SI metric unit for force. Kilogram-force is sometimes also referred to as a kilopond. Kilogram-force can be abbreviated as kgf, and are also sometimes abbreviated as kgF. For example, 1 kilogram-force can be written as 1 kgf or 1 kgF.

Kilogram-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 kgf = 9.80665 kgm / s2

How Much Is Kilogram-Force?

Kilogram-force is a unit of force equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of 9.80665 meters per second squared.

How to Convert Kilogram-Force

To convert kilogram-force to another unit of force, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.[1]

You can find the conversion factors for kilogram-force in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the force measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

kilogram-force × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
