# Force Converter

Force is a fundamental physical quantity that describes the interaction between objects and their ability to cause acceleration. It is crucial to comprehend force and its various units of measurement to accurately analyze and compare different systems.

This article serves as a comprehensive guide to our Force Converter Tool, providing definitions and conversion factors for commonly used units of force.

• Newton (N): The Newton is the standard unit of force in the International System of Units (SI). It represents the force required to accelerate a mass of one kilogram at a rate of one meter per second squared.
Conversion factor: 1 N = 1 kg·m/s²

• Kilonewton (kN): The Kilonewton is equivalent to one thousand Newtons, denoting a larger magnitude of force often encountered in engineering and structural analysis.
Conversion factor: 1 kN = 1000 N

• Kilogram-force (kgf): The kilogram-force is equal to the magnitude of the force exerted on one kilogram of mass in a 9.80665 m/s² gravitational field (standard gravity on Earth).
Conversion factor: 1 kgf = 9.80665 N

• Gram-force (gf): The kilogram-force is equivalent to 0.001 kilogram-force.
Conversion factor: 1 gf = 0.001 kgf = 0.00980665 N

• Pound-force (lbf): The pound-force is equal to the gravitational force exerted on a mass of one pound on the surface of Earth. It is commonly used in engineering applications in the United States.
Conversion factor: 1 lbf = 4.44822 N

• Ounce-force (ozf): An ounce-force is 1/16 of a pound-force. It is defined as the force exerted by a mass of one ounce under standard gravity (at the surface of the earth).
Conversion factor: 1 ozf = 1/16 lbf = 0.2780139 N

• Joule/meter (J/m): Joule per meter represents the force per unit length, commonly used in fields like material science and engineering. It is equivalent to one newton.
Conversion factor: 1 J/m = 1 N

• Dyne (dyn): The Dyne is a centimeter-gram-second (CGS) unit of force that represents the force required to accelerate a mass of one gram at a rate of one centimeter per second squared.
Conversion factor: 1 dyn = 1 g·cm/s² = 0.00001 N

• Poundal (pdl): The Poundal is a unit of force in the foot-pound-second (FPS) system that represents the force required to accelerate a one-pound mass at a rate of one foot per second squared.
Conversion factor: 1 pdl = 1 lb·ft/s² = 0.138255 N

• Pond (p): The Pond is a unit of force in the metric system, primarily used in the Netherlands. It is defined as the force required to accelerate a one-gram mass by one meter per second squared. The pond is not widely used outside of the Netherlands.
Conversion factor: 1 p = 1 gf = 0.00980665 N
