You can do the reverse unit conversion from kilonewton to dyne, or enter any two units below:
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."
The SI prefix "kilo" represents a factor of 103, or in exponential notation, 1E3.
So 1 kilonewton = 103 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.
