## How to Convert Gram-force to Newtons

To convert a gram-force measurement to a newton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One gram-force is equal to 0.009807 newtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

The force in newtons is equal to the gram-force multiplied by 0.009807.

**For example,**here's how to convert 500 gram-force to newtons using the formula above.

Gram-force and newtons are both units used to measure force. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Gram-force

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

The gram-force is a non-SI metric unit for force. A gram-force is sometimes also referred to as a pond. Gram-force can be abbreviated as *gf*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *g _{F}*. For example, 1 gram-force can be written as 1 gf or 1 g

_{F}.

Gram-force can be expressed using the formula:
1 gf = 9.80665 gms^{2}

## 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}
