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 9.02 kilonewton?


As;


1 kilonewton = 0.224809 kilopounds


9.02 kilonewton = Y kilopounds


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


Y equals 9.02 times 0.224809 over 1


(i.e.) Y = 9.02 * 0.224809 / 1 = 2.02777718 kilopounds


Answer is: 2.02777718 kilopounds are equivalent to 9.02 kilonewton.
