**Definitions:**

**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.

**Ounce** (abbreviation: **oz**): is a unit of mass used in customary (imperial) systems of measurement in British. It is most popular in the retail sale of groceries in the United States, also in many other matters of domestic and international trade between customary measurement driven countries.

## How to Convert Newtons to Ounces

*Example: How many Ounces are equivalent to 51.44 newtons?*

As;

1 newtons = 3.5968827275369 Ounces

51.44 newtons = Y Ounces

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

Y equals 51.44 times 3.5968827275369 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 51.44 * 3.5968827275369 / 1 = 185.0236475045 Ounces

Answer is: 185.0236475045 Ounces are equivalent to 51.44 newtons.
