How to Convert Nanonewtons to Dynes

To convert a measurement in nanonewtons to a measurement in dynes, divide the force by the following conversion ratio: 10,000 nanonewtons/dyne.

Since one dyne is equal to 10,000 nanonewtons, you can use this simple formula to convert:

dynes = nanonewtons ÷ 10,000

The force in dynes is equal to the force in nanonewtons divided by 10,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 nanonewtons to dynes using the formula above.
dynes = (5,000 nN ÷ 10,000) = 0.5 dyn

What Is a Nanonewton?

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 billionths, or 10-9. Nanonewtons can be abbreviated as nN; for example, 1 nanonewton can be written as 1 nN.

What Is a Dyne?

The dyne is the force needed to move one gram of mass at a rate of one centimeter per second squared.

The dyne is a centimeter-gram-second (CGS) unit of force. Dynes can be abbreviated as dyn; for example, 1 dyne can be written as 1 dyn.

Dynes can be expressed using the formula: 1 dyn = 1 gcm / s2
