## How to Convert Nanonewtons to Kilonewtons

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

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

kilonewtons = nanonewtons ÷ 1,000,000,000,000

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

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

## 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 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.
