## How to Convert Kilonewtons to Micronewtons

To convert a measurement in kilonewtons to a measurement in micronewtons, multiply the force by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000,000 micronewtons/kilonewton.

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

micronewtons = kilonewtons × 1,000,000,000

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

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

### How Many Micronewtons Are in a Kilonewton?

There are 1,000,000,000 micronewtons in a kilonewton, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kN = 1,000,000,000 μN

## 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 Micronewton?

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 millionths, or 10-6. Micronewtons can be abbreviated as μN; for example, 1 micronewton can be written as 1 μN.
