# How much force is 1 Newton

The Newton is the SI unit of force. It was named after the British scientist Isaac Newton. One newton is therefore the force that is required to accelerate a stationary body with a mass of 1 kg to a speed of 1 m / s within one second.

or:

One Newton is therefore the force that is required for a body with a mass of 1 kg with an acceleration of 1m / s2 to accelerate.

Corresponding approximately the weight of a body weighing 102 g at sea level. The mean acceleration due to gravity is GN = 9.80665 m / s². The unit symbol can be combined with the usual prefixes for units of measure.
