How to Convert Kilonewtons to Meganewtons

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

meganewtons = kilonewtons ÷ 1,000

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

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

Kilonewtons and meganewtons 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.

Meganewtons

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 106. Meganewtons can be abbreviated as MN, for example 1 meganewton can be written as 1 MN.
