How to Convert Kilonewtons to Dynes

To convert a kilonewton measurement to a dyne measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio.

Since one kilonewton is equal to 100,000,000 dynes, you can use this simple formula to convert:

dynes = kilonewtons × 100,000,000

The force in dynes is equal to the kilonewtons multiplied by 100,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilonewtons to dynes using the formula above.
5 kN = (5 × 100,000,000) = 500,000,000 dyn

How Many Dynes Are in a Kilonewton?

There are 100,000,000 dynes in a kilonewton, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kN = 100,000,000 dyn

Kilonewtons and dynes are both units used to measure force. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


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.


The dyne is the force needed to move one gram of mass at a rate of one centimeter per second squared.

The dyne is a centimeter-gram-second (CGS) unit of force. Dynes can be abbreviated as dyn; for example, 1 dyne can be written as 1 dyn.

Dynes can be expressed using the formula: 1 dyn = 1 gcm / s2
