## How to Convert Kilogram-force to Kilonewtons

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

The force in kilonewtons is equal to the kilogram-force multiplied by 0.009807.

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

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

## 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.

The kilogram-force is a non-SI metric unit for force. A kilogram-force is sometimes also referred to as a kilopond. Kilogram-force can be abbreviated as *kgf*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *kg _{F}*. For example, 1 kilogram-force can be written as 1 kgf or 1 kg

_{F}.

Kilogram-force can be expressed using the formula:
1 kgf = 9.80665 kgms^{2}

## 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 10^{3}. Kilonewtons can be abbreviated as *kN*, for example 1 kilonewton can be written as 1 kN.
