## What is gram-force?

The **gram-force** is a unit of force in the centimetre-gram-second (CGS) gravitational system of units equal to 0.00980665 newtons (1 gf = 0.00980665 N), the SI derived unit of force. It is also equal to 9,806.65 micronewtons (μN), or 9.80665 millinewtons (mN), or 0.000980665 decanewtons (daN) or 9.80665x10-6 kilonewtons (kN), which are units of force in the SI.

The gram-force represents the amount of force applied by a mass of one gram in a gravitational field (1 gf = 1 g × 9.80665 m/s2).
