Definitions:

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.

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.

How to Convert Kilograms to Kilonewton

Example: How many kilonewton are equivalent to 48.5 kilograms?


As;


1 kilograms = 0.0098066358553261 kilonewton


48.5 kilograms = Y kilonewton


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


Y equals 48.5 times 0.0098066358553261 over 1


(i.e.) Y = 48.5 * 0.0098066358553261 / 1 = 0.47562183898332 kilonewton


Answer is: 0.47562183898332 kilonewton are equivalent to 48.5 kilograms.
