**Definitions:**

**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.

**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.

## How to Convert Kilonewton to Grams

*Example: How many grams are equivalent to 12.9 kilonewton?*

As;

1 kilonewton = 101971.76837732 grams

12.9 kilonewton = Y grams

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

Y equals 12.9 times 101971.76837732 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 12.9 * 101971.76837732 / 1 = 1315435.8120674 grams

Answer is: 1315435.8120674 grams are equivalent to 12.9 kilonewton.
