# what is relation between the newton and dyne ?

1 newton = 1 kg m/s2

and 1 dyne = 1 g cm/s2

Now, 1 Kg=1000 g and also 1 m = 100 cm.

So, 1 newton = 1000 g 100 cm/s2

1 newton = 105 g cm / s2

1 newton = 105 dyne.

Dyne is CGS (centimeter-gram-second) form of Newton (which is SI unit form). Please do cross check this information.

1 Newton = 1000 dyne

Just think of it this was, 1 Kilogram = 1000 gram, makes sense now right?

Let

F = 1N

m = 1kg

a = 1 ms-2

We know,

F = ma

Substituing the values in the eqnwe get

1N = 1kg x 1 ms-2

since 1kg = 1000g , 1m = 100 cm

1N = 1000 g x 100 cm-2

1N = 105 g cms-2

since 1 dyn = 1 g cm-2

1 N = 105dyn

relation between newton and dyne

we know, 1 newton = 1 kg m/s ...... (1)

now 1 kg = 1000g = 103g

1 m = 100 cm = 102cm

put these values in eqn.(1), we get

therefore 1 newton = 103gX 102cm /s2

= 105g cm/s2

but 1 g cm/s2= 1 dyne

therefore1 newton = 10 5 dyne

1 Newton = 100000 dyne

both are the unit to measure force but the difference is that newton is SI unit and dyne is C.G.S. unit.

1N=1kg*1m
1N=1000g*100cm/s
1N=10^3g*10^2cm/s
1N=10^5gcm/s=>1N=10^5 dynes

Whoops, I meant 100,000 dyne. My bad.

the first one is  the best you can get
