**Definitions:**

**Kilonewton.meter** (abbreviations: **KN.m, or kn m**): is the moment of force in kilonewton times the distance between reference and application points in meter.

**Newton Meter** (abbreviations: **N.m, or nm, or newton.meter**): is the moment of force in newton times the distance between reference and application points in meter.

## How to Convert Kilonewton Meters to Newton Meters

*Example: How many newton meters are equivalent to 8.07 kilonewton meters?*

As;

1 kilonewton meters = 1000 newton meters

8.07 kilonewton meters = Y newton meters

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 8.07 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 8.07 * 1000 / 1 = 8070 newton meters

Answer is: 8070 newton meters are equivalent to 8.07 kilonewton meters.
