# How Do You Convert KN to Kg?

Kilonewton (kN) can be translated to kilogrammes (kg) by multiplying its value by 1000 and then dividing it by the earth’s gravity, which is indicated by the symbol “g” and equals 9.80665 metres per second.

A kilonewton equals one thousand newtons. Newton, represented by “N”, is the SI unit of force and is named after Sir Isaac Newton in recognition of his contributions to classical mechanics. The kilogramme is the foundation mass unit for SI units. Since kN is a unit of force and kg is a unit of mass, they are not interchangeable. Therefore, the conversion from kN to kg should only be performed for convenience, and neither unit can be utilised as the equivalent of the other in an equation. Instead, kN can be converted to kilogram-force (kgf), a force unit that is used less commonly. According to the definition, 1 kilogram-force is equal to the force exerted by a 1 kilogramme mass subjected to the earth’s gravity. This equates 1 kilogramme of force to 9.80665 kilogram-meters per second per second, or 9.80665 Newtons. Joel Gomez is an Avid Coder and technology enthusiast.
