**Definitions:**

**Gram** (abbreviation: **gm**): is a SI (metric) system unit of mass. Where, at the temperature of melting ice, it is the absolute weight of a volume equal to the hundredth part of a metre cube of pure water.

**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 Grams to Kilonewton

*Example: How many kilonewton are equivalent to 14.77 grams?*

As;

1 grams = 9.8066358553261E-6 kilonewton

14.77 grams = Y kilonewton

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

Y equals 14.77 times 9.8066358553261E-6 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 14.77 * 9.8066358553261E-6 / 1 = 0.00014484401158317 kilonewton

Answer is: 0.00014484401158317 kilonewton are equivalent to 14.77 grams.
