# Kilonewtons to Newtons Conversion

Enter the force in kilonewtons below to get the value converted to newtons.

Results in Newtons: 1 kN = 1,000 N

## How to Convert Kilonewtons to Newtons

To convert a kilonewton measurement to a newton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One kilonewton is equal to 1,000 newtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

newtons = kilonewtons × 1,000

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilonewtons to newtons using the formula above.
5 kN = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 N

## 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 103. Kilonewtons can be abbreviated as kN; for example, 1 kilonewton can be written as 1 kN.

## Newtons

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.

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 kgms2
