How to Convert Gram-Force to Kilonewtons

To convert a measurement in gram-force to a measurement in kilonewtons, multiply the force by the following conversion ratio: 9.8067E-6 kilonewtons/gram-force.

Since one gram-force is equal to 9.8067E-6 kilonewtons, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilonewtons = gram-force × 9.8067E-6

The force in kilonewtons is equal to the force in gram-force multiplied by 9.8067E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000 gram-force to kilonewtons using the formula above.
kilonewtons = (500,000 gf × 9.8067E-6) = 4.903325 kN

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

What Is 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. Gram-force is sometimes also referred to as a pond. Gram-force can be abbreviated as gf, and are also sometimes abbreviated as gF. For example, 1 gram-force can be written as 1 gf or 1 gF.

Gram-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 gf = 9.80665 gm / s2

What 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.

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.
