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 the United States, a kip is sometimes a unit of mass that equals 1,000 avoirdupois pounds (used to compute shipping charges), or more often a unit of force that equals 1,000 pounds force (used to measure engineering loads). Its symbol is kip. The name comes from combining the words "kilo" and "pound", thus 1,000 pounds; it is called a kilopound, sometimes using the same symbol kip or sometimes klb.
