**Newton**

**Newton (N)**is a unit in the category of

*Force*. It is also known as newtons. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Newton (N) has a dimension of MLT

^{-2}where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. This unit is the standard SI unit in this category.

Other units in the category of Force include A.u. of Force (a.u.), Crinal (crinal), Dyne (dyn), Gram Force (gf), Joule Per Centimeter (J/cm), Kilogram Force (kgf, kgp), Kilogram Meter Per Square Second (kg-m/s^{2}), Kilopound Force (kip Force) (kipf), Ounce Force (av.) (ozf (av.)), Pound Force (lbf (av.), lbf), Pound Force Foot Per Inch (lbf-ft/in), Poundal (pdl), Slug Foot Per Square Second (slug-ft/s^{2}), Slug Force, Square Foot Inch of Mercury (0°C) (ft^{2}-inHg (0 °C)), Square Foot Inch of Mercury (15.56°C) (ft^{2}-inHg (15.56 °C)), Ton Force (long), Ton Force (metric), and Ton Force (short).
