# Convert 5 n to kn

In this article I will show you how to convert 5 newtons into kilonewtons. Throughout the explanation below I might also call it 5 n to kn. They are the same thing!

## How to Convert Newtons to Kilonewtons

A newton is smaller than a kilonewton. I know that a n is smaller than a kn because of something called conversion factors.

Put very simply, a conversion factor is a number that can be used to change one set of units to another, by multiplying or dividing it. So when we need to convert 5 newtons into kilonewtons, we use a conversion factor to get the answer.

The conversion factor for n to kn is:

1 n = 0.001 kn

Now that we know what the conversion factor is, we can easily calculate the conversion of 5 n to kn by multiplying `0.001` by the number of newtons we have, which is 5.

5 x 0.001 = 0.005 kn

So, the answer to the question "what is 5 newtons in kilonewtons?" is 0.005 kn.

Sometimes when you work with conversions from one unit to another, the numbers can get a little confusing. Especially when dealing with really large numbers.

I've also calculated what the best unit of measurement is for 5 n.
