How to Convert Ounce-force to Kilonewtons

To convert a ounce-force measurement to a kilonewton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One ounce-force is equal to 0.000278 kilonewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilonewtons = ounce-force × 0.000278

The force in kilonewtons is equal to the ounce-force multiplied by 0.000278.

For example, here's how to convert 5 ounce-force to kilonewtons using the formula above.
5 ozf = (5 × 0.000278) = 0.00139 kN

Ounce-force and kilonewtons 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

Kilonewtons

One kilonewton is equal to 1,000 newtons, which are equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.

The kilonewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilonewtons can be abbreviated as kN, for example 1 kilonewton can be written as 1 kN.
