The SI derived unit for force is the newton.
1 newton is equal to 100 centinewtons, or 100000 dyne.
Note that rounding errors may occur, so always check the results.

You can do the reverse unit conversion from dyne to centinewtons, or enter any two units below:
centinewtons to dekanewton
centinewtons to pond
centinewtons to ounce
centinewtons to exanewton
centinewtons to ton-force
centinewtons to petanewton
centinewtons to meganewton
centinewtons to kilonewton
centinewtons to femtonewton
centinewtons to dekagram
The SI prefix "centi" represents a factor of 10-2, or in exponential notation, 1E-2.
So 1 centinewton = 10-2 newtons.
The definition of a newton is as follows:
In physics, the newton (symbol: N) is the SI unit of force, named after Sir Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics. It was first used around 1904, but not until 1948 was it officially adopted by the General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM) as the name for the mks unit of force.
In physics, the dyne is a unit of force specified in the centimetre-gram-second (cgs) system of units, symbol "dyn". One dyne is equal to exactly 10-5 newtons. Further, the dyne can be defined as "the force required to accelerate a mass of one gram at a rate of one centimetre per second squared."
