How to Convert Nanonewtons to Kilonewtons

To convert a nanonewton measurement to a kilonewton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One nanonewton is equal to 1.0E-12 kilonewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilonewtons = nanonewtons × 1.0E-12

The force in kilonewtons is equal to the nanonewtons multiplied by 1.0E-12.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanonewtons to kilonewtons using the formula above.
5 nN = (5 × 1.0E-12) = 5.0E-12 kN

Nanonewtons and kilonewtons 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.

Kilonewtons

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 103. Kilonewtons can be abbreviated as kN, for example 1 kilonewton can be written as 1 kN.
