## How to Convert Kilonewtons to Meganewtons

To convert a measurement in kilonewtons to a measurement in meganewtons, divide the force by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 kilonewtons/meganewton.

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

meganewtons = kilonewtons ÷ 1,000

The force in meganewtons is equal to the force in kilonewtons divided by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 kilonewtons to meganewtons using the formula above.
meganewtons = (5,000 kN ÷ 1,000) = 5 MN

## 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 Meganewton?

One meganewton is equal to 1,000,000 newtons, which are equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.

The meganewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 106. Meganewtons can be abbreviated as MN; for example, 1 meganewton can be written as 1 MN.
