Force Conversion

Force Conversion




Force is an interaction that can cause deformation and/or change of motion of an object. Any push or pull is a force.Force is a vector i.e. direction of force is in which it is applied

The SI unit of force is the newton (1 N = 1 kg-m/s2)

Concept of force is derived from Newton’s law of motions:

Newton’s First Law of Motion

An object at rest remains at rest, and an object in motion continues in motion with constant velocity, unless it experiences a net external force.

Newton’s Second Law of Motion

The net force on a body is equal to the product of the body’s mass and the acceleration of the body.

Newton’s Third Law of Motion

When two objects interact, the force on the object from each other are always equal in magnitude and opposite in direction.

Various types of Forces
Gravitational Force The force exerted by the Earth on an object is the gravitational force ( F) The magnitude of the gravitational force is called the weight of the object(W)
Frictional Force If we slide or attempt to slide a body over a surface, the motion is resisted by a bonding between the body and the surface. The resistence is considered to be a single force called the frictional force.
Tension Force The tension force is the force that is transmitted through a string, rope, cable or wire when it is pulled tight by forces acting from opposite ends.


Newton to Kilogram-Force

Ratio between Newton and Kilogram-Force is given below

1 Newton = 0.101971621 Kilogram-Force

For example:

Convert 600 Newton to Kilogram-Force?

F(Kgf) = 0.101971621 * 600 F(N) i.e. 61.1829726 F(Kgf)

In the similar fashion Kilogram-Force can be converted into Newton. Ratio between Kilogram-Force and Newton is :

1 Kilogram-Force = 9.80665 Newton


Newton to Pound-Force

Ratio between Newton and Pound-Force is given below

1 Newton = 2.20462262087095 Pound-Force

For example:

Convert 600 Newton to Pound-Force?

F(lbf) = 2.20462262087095 * 600 F(N) i.e.1322.77357252257 F(lbf)
