## What Is a Kilonewton?

A kilonewton is a unit used to measure force.

The kilonewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 103. Kilonewtons can be abbreviated as kN; for example, 1 kilonewton can be written as 1 kN.

## How Much Is a Kilonewton?

One kilonewton is equal to 1,000 newtons, which are equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.

## How to Convert Kilonewtons

To convert kilonewtons 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 kilonewtons 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.

kilonewtons × conversion factor = result

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