**Definitions:**

**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.

**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.

## How to Convert Newton Meters to Kilonewton Meters

*Example: How many kilonewton meters are equivalent to 46.31 newton meters?*

As;

1 newton meters = 0.001 kilonewton meters

46.31 newton meters = Y kilonewton meters

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

Y equals 46.31 times 0.001 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 46.31 * 0.001 / 1 = 0.04631 kilonewton meters

Answer is: 0.04631 kilonewton meters are equivalent to 46.31 newton meters.
