How to Convert Kilogram-force to Meganewtons

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

meganewtons = kilogram-force × 9.8067E-6

The force in meganewtons is equal to the kilogram-force multiplied by 9.8067E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000 kilogram-force to meganewtons using the formula above.
500,000 kgf = (500,000 × 9.8067E-6) = 4.903325 MN

Kilogram-force and meganewtons 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 kgF. For example, 1 kilogram-force can be written as 1 kgf or 1 kgF.

Kilogram-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 kgf = 9.80665 kgms2

Meganewtons

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

The meganewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 106. Meganewtons can be abbreviated as MN, for example 1 meganewton can be written as 1 MN.
