How to Convert Millinewtons to Kilonewtons

To convert a measurement in millinewtons to a measurement in kilonewtons, divide the force by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 millinewtons/kilonewton.

Since one kilonewton is equal to 1,000,000 millinewtons, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilonewtons = millinewtons ÷ 1,000,000

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

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

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

What Is a Millinewton?

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 thousandths, or 10-3. Millinewtons can be abbreviated as mN; for example, 1 millinewton can be written as 1 mN.

What Is a Kilonewton?

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 thousands, or 103. Kilonewtons can be abbreviated as kN; for example, 1 kilonewton can be written as 1 kN.
