How to Convert Millinewtons to Newtons

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

newtons = millinewtons ÷ 1,000

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

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 millinewtons to newtons using the formula above.
5,000 mN = (5,000 ÷ 1,000) = 5 N

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

Millinewtons

One millinewton is equal to 1/1,000 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 millinewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. Millinewtons can be abbreviated as mN, for example 1 millinewton can be written as 1 mN.

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 kgms2
