## How to Convert Micronewtons to Newtons

To convert a micronewton measurement to a newton measurement, divide the force by the conversion ratio. One newton is equal to 1,000,000 micronewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

The force in newtons is equal to the micronewtons divided by 1,000,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5,000,000 micronewtons to newtons using the formula above.

Micronewtons and newtons 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.

## Newtons

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 kgms^{2}
