How to Convert Meganewtons to Kilonewtons

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

kilonewtons = meganewtons × 1,000

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

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

Meganewtons and kilonewtons 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.

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.
