How to Convert Meganewtons to Newtons

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

newtons = meganewtons × 1,000,000

The force in newtons is equal to the meganewtons multiplied by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 meganewtons to newtons using the formula above.
5 MN = (5 × 1,000,000) = 5,000,000 N

Meganewtons and newtons are both units used to measure force. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

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.

Newtons

The newton is a unit to for measuring force equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.[1]

The newton is the SI derived unit for force in the metric system. Newtons can be abbreviated as N, for example 1 newton can be written as 1 N.

Newtons can be expressed using the formula: 1 N = 1 kgms2
