How to Convert Meganewtons to Newtons

To convert a measurement in meganewtons to a measurement in newtons, multiply the force by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 newtons/meganewton.

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

newtons = meganewtons × 1,000,000

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

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

How Many Newtons Are in a Meganewton?

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

1 MN = 1,000,000 N

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

What Is a Meganewton?

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

What Is a Newton?

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 kgm / s2
