Atomic Mass Unit (abbreviations: amu, or u): also known as dalton (symbol: Da), is a standard unit of mass that used on an atomic or molecular scale (atomic mass). One unified atomic mass unit is about the mass of one nucleon (either a single proton or neutron) and equivalent to 1 g/mol.

Kilonewton (abbreviation: kN): is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force where 1 kN = 1000 N. It is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics, specifically Newton's second law of motion.

## How to Convert Atomic Mass Units to Kilonewton

### Example: How many kilonewton are equivalent to 35.88 atomic mass units?

As;

1 atomic mass units = 1.6279275988257E-29 kilonewton

35.88 atomic mass units = Y kilonewton

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

Y equals 35.88 times 1.6279275988257E-29 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 35.88 * 1.6279275988257E-29 / 1 = 5.8410042245866E-28 kilonewton

Answer is: 5.8410042245866E-28 kilonewton are equivalent to 35.88 atomic mass units.
