## How to Convert Kilonewtons to Newtons

To convert a measurement in kilonewtons to a measurement in newtons, multiply the force by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 newtons/kilonewton.

Since one kilonewton is equal to 1,000 newtons, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The force in newtons is equal to the force in kilonewtons multiplied by 1,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kilonewtons to newtons using the formula above.

### How Many Newtons Are in a Kilonewton?

There are **1,000** newtons in a kilonewton, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kN = 1,000 N

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

## What is a Newton?

The newton is a unit to for measuring force equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.^{[1]}

The newton is the SI derived unit for force in the metric system. Newtons can be abbreviated as *N*; for example, 1 newton can be written as 1 N.

Newtons can be expressed using the formula:
1 N = 1 kgm / s^{2}
