1 joule/metre to hectonewton = 0.01 hectonewton
10 joule/metre to hectonewton = 0.1 hectonewton
50 joule/metre to hectonewton = 0.5 hectonewton
100 joule/metre to hectonewton = 1 hectonewton
200 joule/metre to hectonewton = 2 hectonewton
500 joule/metre to hectonewton = 5 hectonewton
1000 joule/metre to hectonewton = 10 hectonewton
You can do the reverse unit conversion from hectonewton to joule/metre, or enter any two units below:
joule/metre to ounce
joule/metre to decinewton
joule/metre to dekanewton
joule/metre to pond
joule/metre to kilopond
joule/metre to poundal
joule/metre to decigram
joule/metre to piconewton
joule/metre to attonewton
joule/metre to zettanewton
The SI prefix "hecto" represents a factor of 102, or in exponential notation, 1E2.
So 1 hectonewton = 102 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.
