How to Convert Micronewtons to Newtons

To convert a micronewton measurement to a newton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One micronewton is equal to 1.0E-6 newtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

newtons = micronewtons × 1.0E-6

The force in newtons is equal to the micronewtons multiplied by 1.0E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 5 micronewtons to newtons using the formula above.
5 μN = (5 × 1.0E-6) = 5.0E-6 N

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.

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 kgms2
