## How to Convert Millinewtons to Newtons

To convert a millinewton measurement to a newton measurement, divide the force by the conversion ratio.

Since one newton is equal to 1,000 millinewtons, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The force in newtons is equal to the millinewtons divided by 1,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5,000 millinewtons to newtons using the formula above.

Millinewtons and newtons are both units used to measure force. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Millinewtons

One millinewton is equal to 1/1,000 of a newton, which is equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.

The millinewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10^{-3}. Millinewtons can be abbreviated as *mN*; for example, 1 millinewton can be written as 1 mN.

## Newtons

The newton is a unit to for measuring force equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.^{[1]}

The newton is the SI derived unit for force in the metric system. Newtons can be abbreviated as *N*; for example, 1 newton can be written as 1 N.

Newtons can be expressed using the formula:
1 N = 1 kgms^{2}
