How to Convert Kilonewtons to Gram-force

To convert a kilonewton measurement to a gram-force measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One kilonewton is equal to 101,971.62005 gram-force, so use this simple formula to convert:

gram-force = kilonewtons × 101,971.62005

The force in gram-force is equal to the kilonewtons multiplied by 101,971.62005.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilonewtons to gram-force using the formula above.
5 kN = (5 × 101,971.62005) = 509,858.10025 gf

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

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.

Gram-force

Gram-force is a unit of force equal to the force needed to move one gram of mass at a rate of 9.80665 meters per second squared.

The gram-force is a non-SI metric unit for force. A gram-force is sometimes also referred to as a pond. Gram-force can be abbreviated as gf, and are also sometimes abbreviated as gF. For example, 1 gram-force can be written as 1 gf or 1 gF.

Gram-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 gf = 9.80665 gms2
