How to Convert Nanonewtons to Micronewtons

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

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

micronewtons = nanonewtons ÷ 1,000

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

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

Nanonewtons and micronewtons are both units used to measure force. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

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.
