How to Convert Nanonewtons to Kilogram-force

To convert a nanonewton measurement to a kilogram-force measurement, divide the force by the conversion ratio. One kilogram-force is equal to 9,806,650,120 nanonewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilogram-force = nanonewtons ÷ 9,806,650,120

The force in kilogram-force is equal to the nanonewtons divided by 9,806,650,120.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000,000 nanonewtons to kilogram-force using the formula above.
5,000,000,000 nN = (5,000,000,000 ÷ 9,806,650,120) = 0.509858 kgf

Nanonewtons and kilogram-force 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.

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
