## 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:

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.

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 *oz _{F}*. For example, 1 ounce-force can be written as 1 ozf or 1 oz

_{F}.

Ounce-force can be expressed using the formula:
1 ozf = 32.174049 ozfts^{2}

## 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 kgms^{2}
