How to Convert Nanonewtons to Newtons

To convert a nanonewton measurement to a newton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One nanonewton is equal to 1.0E-9 newtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

newtons = nanonewtons × 1.0E-9

The force in newtons is equal to the nanonewtons multiplied by 1.0E-9.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanonewtons to newtons using the formula above.
5 nN = (5 × 1.0E-9) = 5.0E-9 N

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

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.

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.

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
