How to Convert Kilonewtons to Micronewtons

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

micronewtons = kilonewtons × 1,000,000,000

The force in micronewtons is equal to the kilonewtons multiplied by 1,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilonewtons to micronewtons using the formula above.
5 kN = (5 × 1,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000 μN

Kilonewtons and micronewtons 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.

Micronewtons

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

The micronewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Micronewtons can be abbreviated as μN, for example 1 micronewton can be written as 1 μN.
