How to Convert Gram-force to Kilonewtons

To convert a gram-force measurement to a kilonewton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One gram-force is equal to 9.8067E-6 kilonewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilonewtons = gram-force × 9.8067E-6

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 gram-force to kilonewtons using the formula above.
5 gf = (5 × 9.8067E-6) = 4.9033E-5 kN

Gram-force and kilonewtons 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 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 gms2

Kilonewtons

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 103. Kilonewtons can be abbreviated as kN, for example 1 kilonewton can be written as 1 kN.
