kilopond to pond
The SI prefix "kilo" represents a factor of 103, or in exponential notation, 1E3.
So 1 kilopond = 103 ponds.
The SI prefix "mega" represents a factor of 106, or in exponential notation, 1E6.
So 1 meganewton = 106 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.
