How to Convert Millinewtons to Kilogram-force

To convert a millinewton measurement to a kilogram-force measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One millinewton is equal to 0.000102 kilogram-force, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilogram-force = millinewtons × 0.000102

The force in kilogram-force is equal to the millinewtons multiplied by 0.000102.

For example, here's how to convert 5 millinewtons to kilogram-force using the formula above.
5 mN = (5 × 0.000102) = 0.00051 kgf

Millinewtons and kilogram-force 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.

Kilogram-force

Kilogram-force is a unit of force equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of 9.80665 meters per second squared.

The kilogram-force is a non-SI metric unit for force. A kilogram-force is sometimes also referred to as a kilopond. Kilogram-force can be abbreviated as kgf, and are also sometimes abbreviated as kgF. For example, 1 kilogram-force can be written as 1 kgf or 1 kgF.

Kilogram-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 kgf = 9.80665 kgms2
