You can do the reverse unit conversion from kilogram-force to dekanewton, or enter any two units below:

dekanewton to joule/meter

dekanewton to femtonewton

dekanewton to piconewton

dekanewton to ounce

dekanewton to zeptonewton

dekanewton to decinewton

dekanewton to dekagram

dekanewton to yottanewton

dekanewton to attonewton

dekanewton to kilonewton

The SI prefix "deka" represents a factor of
10^{1}, or in exponential notation, 1E1.

So 1 dekanewton = 10^{1} 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.

The deprecated unit kilogram-force (kgf) or kilopond (kp) is the force exerted by one kilogram of mass in standard Earth gravity (defined as exactly 9.80665 m/sē). One kilogram-force is equal to exactly 9.80665 newtons.
