# Force Conversion Calculator

The Free Online Force Converter helps you convert one measuring unit of force into another measuring unit.

You can convert between newton (Kgm/s2), dyne (dy), pound-force (Ibf), poundal, kip (k), kilopond-force (kpf), kilogram-force (kgf), and ounce force (ozf).

Instantly convert one unit to all others.

## What do you mean by force?

In simple words, the force is the strength or energy resulted because of physical action or movement. When the two objects interact, the push or pull energy produced due to that interaction is a force.

When the interaction gets canceled, both objects no longer experience the force.

The formula to measure the force is

F = ma

where

F = force

m = mass

a = acceleration

To calculate the force, you must know the mass and the acceleration related to that object.

The force is the vector quantity because it involves both the magnitude and direction as the force is defined as the external agent capable of changing the object's rest or the motion state.

Therefore, the direction towards the force is applied is the direction of that force.

## Types of force

There are two types of force.

1. Contact Force
2. Non-Contact/Action-at-distance Force

Contact Force is the type of force that results when two interacting objects are perceived to be physically interacting. That force acts on the body either directly or through the medium.

For example

• Frictional force
• Tension force
• Normal force
• Air resistance force
• Applied force
• Spring force

Non-Contact/Action-at-distance Force is the type of force that resulted in two interacting objects that are not physically interacting. The force that acts through spaces without any physical interaction.

For example

• Gravitational force
• Electrostatic force
• Magnetic force.

### What is the unit to measure the force?

Generally speaking, the SI derived unit Newton (Kgm/s2) is taken as the standard unit for calculating an object's force.

However, other measuring units, dyne, kilogram-force, ounce force, pound-force, etc., are also used to measure the force.

In the SI unit (standard international system of the unit), the force is expressed in Newton.

However, the force is expressed in dyne in the CGS unit (centimeter gram second system of the unit).

### Why do we need to calculate the force?

We need to calculate the force in our daily life because the force is the external agent that affects the object's rest or motion state. Therefore, the force not only changes the speed but also changes the direction of the object.

The force has different effects on the object.

• If the object is at rest, it makes the object move.
• If the object is at moving status, it slows it down.
• It accelerates the moving body.
• It changes the direction of the moving body, even its shape, and size.

#### Online conversion tool V/S Manual conversion, which one is better?

After the technological revolution, the most significant change that happened is that the machine replaces the human. And we brought the standards in our lives by moving from estimated calculations to proper and accurate calculations.

Even though the machines are built and programmed by humans, therefore, they are preferred over humans because they give you accurate and correct results within no time.

The force is measured in Newton (Kgm/s2). However, other measuring units are still used like dyne (dy), pound-force (Ibf), poundal, kip (k), kilopond-force (kpf), kilogram-force (kgf), and ounce force (ozf), to measure the force.

Moreover, sometimes, you have to convert one measuring unit of force into another measuring unit. Here the online force unit converter helps you a lot for accurate and precise conversion.

#### How to use the free online force unit converter tool?

Doing manual calculation make things quite challenging for you.

The free online force unit converter makes your life easy.

• Enter the amount and select the unit you want to convert in the "Select from" column.
• In the second column, "Select to," you have to choose the measuring unit you wish to convert.
• The online tool will provide you the exact calculations within no time.

##### How to convert Newton (Kgm/s2) to a dyne (dy) using an online force unit converter tool?

An online force unit converter tool makes the conversion process easy. You can easily convert one measuring unit of the force to another measuring unit within no time.

To do this, follow the below-mentioned steps.

• Open the Online Force Unit Converter Tool.
• Enter the amount 1 in the first column.
• The second column, "Select from," Newton (Kgm/s2) as a measuring unit from which you want to convert.
• In the third column, "Select to," select dyne (dy) as a measuring unit in which you want to convert.
• Click on the "convert" button; the result will be 99999.99999999999 dyne (dy) within no time.

Therefore, 1 Newton (Kgm/s2) = 100000 dyne (dy)

Note: The same procedure will be adopted in conversion between newton (Kgm/s2), dyne (dy), pound-force (Ibf), poundal, kip (k), kilopond-force (kpf), kilogram-force (kgf), and ounce force (ozf).
