How to Convert Nanonewtons to Micronewtons

To convert a nanonewton measurement to a micronewton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One nanonewton is equal to 0.001 micronewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

micronewtons = nanonewtons × 0.001

The force in micronewtons is equal to the nanonewtons multiplied by 0.001.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanonewtons to micronewtons using the formula above.
5 nN = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 μN

Nanonewtons and micronewtons 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.

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.
