# Nanonewtons to Micronewtons Conversion

Enter the force in nanonewtons below to get the value converted to micronewtons.

Results in Micronewtons: 1 nN = 0.001 μN

## How to Convert Nanonewtons to Micronewtons

To convert a nanonewton measurement to a micronewton measurement, divide the force by the conversion ratio. One micronewton is equal to 1,000 nanonewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

micronewtons = nanonewtons ÷ 1,000

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

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

## 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.

## Micronewtons

One micronewton is equal to 1/1,000,000 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 micronewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Micronewtons can be abbreviated as μN; for example, 1 micronewton can be written as 1 μN.
