## What is Newton?

The **newton** is the SI derived unit of force. One newton 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).

The SI is an abbreviation for the International System of Units.
