**Definitions:**

**Metric Tonne** (abbreviations: **metric ton, or metric tons, or ton, or tons**): is a SI metric unit of mass, also known as tonne. 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 1,000 kilograms (Kg), or one megagram (Mg), or approximately 2,204.6 pounds (lb), or 1.10 short tons (US), or 0.984 long tons (imperial).

**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 Metric Tonnes to Kilonewton

*Example: How many kilonewton are equivalent to 98.16 metric tonnes?*

As;

1 metric tonnes = 9.80663585533 kilonewton

98.16 metric tonnes = Y kilonewton

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

Y equals 98.16 times 9.80663585533 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 98.16 * 9.80663585533 / 1 = 962.619375559 kilonewton

Answer is: 962.619375559 kilonewton are equivalent to 98.16 metric tonnes.
