# Newton conversions

## Convert Newtons to

newton (unit of force), pl. newtons, abbr. N

The Newton conversion selector on this page selects the force measurement unit to convert to starting from Newtons (N). To make a conversion starting from a unit of force other than Newton, simply click on the "Reset" button.

The newton is the SI derived unit of force.

One newton (N) is equal to 1,000,000 micronewtons (μN), or 1,000 millinewtons (mN), or 100 centinewtons (cN), or 0.1 decanewtons (daN), or 0.001 kilonewtons (kN) or 10-6 meganewtons (MN), which are units of force in the SI.

The newton represents the amount of force needed to accelerate a mass of one kilogram to one meter per second squared:

1 N = 1 kg × 1 m/s2

Symbol: N

Plural: Newtons
