How to Convert Micronewtons to Dynes

To convert a micronewton measurement to a dyne measurement, divide the force by the conversion ratio. One dyne is equal to 10 micronewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

dynes = micronewtons ÷ 10

The force in dynes is equal to the micronewtons divided by 10.

For example, here's how to convert 5 micronewtons to dynes using the formula above.
5 μN = (5 ÷ 10) = 0.5 dyn

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

Micronewtons

One micronewton is equal to 1/1,000,000 of a newton, which is equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.

The micronewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Micronewtons can be abbreviated as μN, for example 1 micronewton can be written as 1 μN.

Dynes

The dyne is the force needed to move one gram of mass at a rate of one centimeter per second squared.

The dyne is a centimeter-gram-second (CGS) unit of force. Dynes can be abbreviated as dyn, for example 1 dyne can be written as 1 dyn.

Dynes can be expressed using the formula: 1 dyn = 1 gcms2
