How to Convert Kilonewtons to Kilogram-force

Convert kilonewtons to kilogram-force with this simple formula:

kilogram-force = kilonewtons × 101.97162

Converting a kilonewton force measurement to a kilogram-force measurement involves multiplying the force by the conversion ratio to find the result. One kilonewton is equal to 101.97162 kilogram-force, so to convert simply multiply by 101.97162.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilonewtons to kilogram-force using the formula above.
5 kN = (5 × 101.97162) = 509.8581 kgf

Kilonewtons and kilogram-force are both units used to measure force. Learn more about force and find more force measurement conversion calculators. Kilonewtons are an SI derived unit of force and can be abbreviated as kN, for example 1 kN. Kilogram-force is a force measurement and can be abbreviated as kgf, for example 1 kgf.
