Kilogram-force is a non-standard unit and does not comply with SI Metric System

Work Step by Step

The kilogram-power or kilopond is a gravitational metric unit of power. It is equivalent to the size of the power applied by one kilogram of mass in a 9.80665 m/s2 gravitational field . Along these lines one kilogram-drive is by definition equivalent to 9.80665 N. Additionally, a gram-constrain is 9.80665 mN, and a milligram-drive is 9.80665 µN. One kilogram-drive is around 2.204622 pounds-compel.
