**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.

**Long Ton** (abbreviations: **Lton, or ton imperial**): is a non-SI metric unit of mass. Although, it is used principally as a unit of mass, it has acquired a number of meanings and uses over long years. It is equivalent to 1,016 kilograms (Kg), or approximately 2,239.859 pounds (lb), or 1.119929 short tons (US), or 1.016 metric tons.

## How to Convert Kilonewton to Long Tons

*Example: How many Long tons are equivalent to 10.48 kilonewton?*

As;

1 kilonewton = 0.10036132823933 Long tons

10.48 kilonewton = Y Long tons

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

Y equals 10.48 times 0.10036132823933 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 10.48 * 0.10036132823933 / 1 = 1.0517867199482 Long tons

Answer is: 1.0517867199482 Long tons are equivalent to 10.48 kilonewton.
