How to Convert Nanonewtons to Gram-force

To convert a nanonewton measurement to a gram-force measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One nanonewton is equal to 1.0197E-7 gram-force, so use this simple formula to convert:

gram-force = nanonewtons × 1.0197E-7

The force in gram-force is equal to the nanonewtons multiplied by 1.0197E-7.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanonewtons to gram-force using the formula above.
5 nN = (5 × 1.0197E-7) = 5.0986E-7 gf

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


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.


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

The gram-force is a non-SI metric unit for force. A gram-force is sometimes also referred to as a pond. Gram-force can be abbreviated as gf, and are also sometimes abbreviated as gF. For example, 1 gram-force can be written as 1 gf or 1 gF.

Gram-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 gf = 9.80665 gms2
