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.

Kilopound (abbreviation: kips): is a unit of force, equivalent to 1000 pounds (lb) which is used in some systems of measurement including English Engineering units and the British Gravitational System. Also, it is a unit of mass used in the imperial, United States customary and other systems of measurement.

How to Convert Kilonewton to Kilopounds

Example: How many kilopounds are equivalent to 16.15 kilonewton?


1 kilonewton = 0.224809 kilopounds

16.15 kilonewton = Y kilopounds

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

Y equals 16.15 times 0.224809 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 16.15 * 0.224809 / 1 = 3.63066535 kilopounds

Answer is: 3.63066535 kilopounds are equivalent to 16.15 kilonewton.
