**Kilogram Force : **
The kilogram-force, or called kilopond, is a gravitational metric unit of force. Its symbols are kgf and kgF. A kilogram-force is equal to the magnitude of the force exerted by one kilogram of mass in a 9.80665 m/s2 gravitational field. Therefore one kilogram-force is by definition equal to 9.80665 N. One kilogram-force is approximately 2.204622 pounds-force.

**Newton : **
Newton is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force. It is the force required to accelerate a mass of one kilogram by one metre per second squared. Its symbol is N. The unit of Newton is equivalent to the units kilogram-meter per squared second (kg•m•s⁻²).
