Convert kilogram-force meter to newton meter

What is a kilogram force meter?

A kilogram force meter is a metric utilized for the evaluation of work and energy. To understand its meaning, let’s consider closely what a kilogram-force is. The latter is nearly equal to the force with which a 1-kg body presses on a scale on the surface of the Earth.

This unit is quite convenient and has sufficient accuracy. Thus, it is simple to imagine, for example, what a force of 3 or 10 kgf is. In addition, 1 kgf corresponds to 9.80665 or approximately 10 N.

Another advantage of using it is that the kilogram-force per square centimeter is a good approximation of normal atmospheric value of pressure.

As for the kilogram force meter, one such unit equals the work done by a force of 1 kgf which moves at a distance of 1 meter in its direction. One kgf m is equal to 9.80665 J.

What is a newton meter?

What is a newton meter? Let's start with newton. This is a standard metric for the evaluation of force, named after a famous scientist.

There is also a kilogram-force (kgf) option that is familiar and understandable. For example, a person weighs 70 kg, this is exactly the force with which he presses on a horizontal surface.

However, kgf is not recognized internationally. For this, we have newtons that are widely used in mechanical engineering and the auto industry. It’s easy to convert them into kilogram-forces, since 1 kgf = 9.8 or approximately 10 N.

Now, if you take a lever one meter long, put it on a screw and apply a force of one newton (1 N) to the opposite end, then a moment will appear on it when tightening of one newton meter or 1 nm. If you apply a force of 10 N, you’ll get 10 nm and so on. Thus, it is the force multiplied by the length of the lever.

How to Convert kilogram-force meter to newton meter

To convert kg force meter to nm, you might employ the subsequent instructions and procedures:

  • Employing the elemental principles: Kgf is an element of power. The kilogram-force meter to Newton meter modification element is established on the acceleration due to gravity, which is roughly 9.81 m/s². To transform kgf·m to Nm, employ the instructions: 1 kgf·m = 9.81 Nm
  • Explicit proliferation: bear the weight in Kgf meters by 9.81 to receive the analogous value in Nm. Nm = kgf·m × 9.81

These procedures permit you to complete the kg force meter to nm transformation without depending on online benefits, providing precision in your computations.

To convert kilogram-force meter to newton meter, the formula is used,
Nm = kgf.m × 9.80665

How many kilogram-force meter in a newton meter

A kilogram-force meter to nm is both torque units, but they differ in their definitions. 1 N meter is equal to 0.10197 kg-f·m. For illustration, 1 Nm of torque equals roughly 0.10197 kgf·m. To transform from Nm to kgf·m, you might breed by 0.10197; to correct from kgf·m to Nm, separate by 0.10197.
