How to Convert Micronewtons to Kilonewtons

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

kilonewtons = micronewtons ÷ 1,000,000,000

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

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000,000 micronewtons to kilonewtons using the formula above.
5,000,000,000 μN = (5,000,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000,000) = 5 kN

Micronewtons and kilonewtons 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.

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.
