**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.

**Newton** (abbreviation: **N**): is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force. It is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics, specifically Newton's second law of motion. One newton is the force needed to accelerate one kilogram of mass at the rate of one metre per second squared in direction of the applied force.

## How to Convert Grams to Newtons

*Example: How many newtons are equivalent to 41.51 grams?*

As;

1 grams = 0.00980665 newtons

41.51 grams = Y newtons

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

Y equals 41.51 times 0.00980665 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 41.51 * 0.00980665 / 1 = 0.4070740415 newtons

Answer is: 0.4070740415 newtons are equivalent to 41.51 grams.
