How to Convert Kilonewtons to Dynes

To convert a measurement in kilonewtons to a measurement in dynes, multiply the force by the following conversion ratio: 100,000,000 dynes/kilonewton.

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 force in kilonewtons multiplied by 100,000,000.

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

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.

What Is a Dyne?

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
