Convert **joule per meter** to **decanewton**

Selected category: force.

Joule is defined to be the work done by a force of one newton acting to move an object through a distance of one meter in the direction in which the force is applied. So joule per meter is equal to newton.

Dekanewton or decanewton (daN) is a metric unit of force equal to 10 newtons, or 1 megadyne, or 1,019716 kilograms of force (kgf) or kiloponds (kp). This unit is a convenient substitute for the kilogram of force or kilopond, since it is nearly equal to those units.

Swap, do a decanewton to joule per meter conversion.
