How to Convert Meganewtons to Kilogram-force

To convert a meganewton measurement to a kilogram-force measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One meganewton is equal to 101,971.62005 kilogram-force, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilogram-force = meganewtons × 101,971.62005

The force in kilogram-force is equal to the meganewtons multiplied by 101,971.62005.

For example, here's how to convert 5 meganewtons to kilogram-force using the formula above.
5 MN = (5 × 101,971.62005) = 509,858.10025 kgf

Meganewtons and kilogram-force 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 109. Meganewtons can be abbreviated as MN, for example 1 meganewton can be written as 1 MN.

Kilogram-force

Kilogram-force is a unit of force equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of 9.80665 meters per second squared.

The kilogram-force is a non-SI metric unit for force. A kilogram-force is sometimes also referred to as a kilopond. Kilogram-force can be abbreviated as kgf, and are also sometimes abbreviated as kgF. For example, 1 kilogram-force can be written as 1 kgf or 1 kgF.

Kilogram-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 kgf = 9.80665 kgms2
