How to Convert Micronewtons to Nanonewtons

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

nanonewtons = micronewtons × 1,000

The force in nanonewtons is equal to the micronewtons multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 micronewtons to nanonewtons using the formula above.
5 μN = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 nN

Micronewtons and nanonewtons 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.

Nanonewtons

One nanonewton is equal to 1/1,000,000,000 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 nanonewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "nano" is the prefix for 10-9. Nanonewtons can be abbreviated as nN, for example 1 nanonewton can be written as 1 nN.
