## How to Convert Kilonewtons to Meganewtons

To convert a kilonewton measurement to a meganewton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One kilonewton is equal to 0.001 meganewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

The force in meganewtons is equal to the kilonewtons multiplied by 0.001.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kilonewtons to meganewtons using the formula above.

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 10^{3}. 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 10^{9}. Meganewtons can be abbreviated as *MN*, for example 1 meganewton can be written as 1 MN.
