How to Convert Ounce-force to Newtons

To convert an ounce-force measurement to a newton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One ounce-force is equal to 0.278014 newtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

newtons = ounce-force × 0.278014

The force in newtons is equal to the ounce-force multiplied by 0.278014.

For example, here's how to convert 5 ounce-force to newtons using the formula above.
5 ozf = (5 × 0.278014) = 1.390069 N

Ounce-force and newtons are both units used to measure force. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Ounce-force

Ounce-force is a unit of force equal to the force needed to move one ounce of mass at a rate of 32.174049 feet per second squared. One ounce of force is equal to 1/16th of a pound of force.

The ounce-force is a US customary and imperial unit of force. Ounce-force can be abbreviated as ozf, and are also sometimes abbreviated as ozF. For example, 1 ounce-force can be written as 1 ozf or 1 ozF.

Ounce-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 ozf = 32.174049 ozfts2

Newtons

The newton is a unit to for measuring force equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.[1]

The newton is the SI derived unit for force in the metric system. Newtons can be abbreviated as N, for example 1 newton can be written as 1 N.

Newtons can be expressed using the formula: 1 N = 1 kgms2
