Can anyone tell me what is kilonewton and newtonmetre
and how do you convert from newtonmetre to kilonewton
A KiloNewton is 1000 Newtons. A Newton is the SI unit of force that when applied to one kilogram mass would experience an acceleration of one meter per second per second.

... not K
the correct SI symbol for seconds is lowercase s
... not sec
unlike the Imperial System of Measurement ... all units in International System of Units (SI) have standardized symbols

A Newton-meter is another name for the SI unit of work or energy, the Joule. Work is defined as force times distance, so the Joule would be one kilogram mass accelerated to one meter per second per second over a distance of one meter:
Kg m /secÂ² ∙ m = Kg mÂ²/secÂ².
As you can see, you cannot really convert from from Joules to Newtons. The Joule is dependent on the Newton by definition.
You could divide the number of Joules by the distance, thus ending up with the number of Newtons applied, and then divide the number of Newtons by 1000 to convert Newtons to KiloNewtons. For example:
100 Joules Ã· 1 meter = 100 Newtons
100 Newtons Ã· 1000 Newtons/KiloNewton = 0.1 KiloNewtons
All this would do is tell you how much force you applied to a distance - which is something you already know.
