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.

Kilogram (abbreviations: kg, or kgm): is a SI (metric) system unit of mass (IPK, also known as "Le Grand K" or "Big K") and equivalent to 1/1000 of one gram. Where, at the temperature of melting ice, one gram is the absolute weight of a volume equal to the hundredth part of a metre cube of pure water.

How to Convert Kilonewton to Kilograms

Example: How many kilograms are equivalent to 4.9 kilonewton?


1 kilonewton = 101.97176837732 kilograms

4.9 kilonewton = Y kilograms

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

Y equals 4.9 times 101.97176837732 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 4.9 * 101.97176837732 / 1 = 499.66166504887 kilograms

Answer is: 499.66166504887 kilograms are equivalent to 4.9 kilonewton.
