How to Convert Meganewtons to Kilonewtons

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

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

kilonewtons = meganewtons × 1,000

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

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

How Many Kilonewtons Are in a Meganewton?

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

1 MN = 1,000 kN

Meganewtons and kilonewtons 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 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.
