Default g/cm3 to kN/m3

I need to convert 1.67 gt/cm3 to kN/m3. Any idea about this?

1) 1.6 g/cm is also 1.6 kg/L or 1600 kg/m
2) The force of standard gravity (it varies about % from equator to pole at sea level) acting on a mass is 9.80665 N/kg. (Round to 9.81). So the force acting on it is 15696 N/m or 15.7 kN/m (approx)

Keep in mind, this assumes you are on earth, at sea level, at about 45 latitude. Elsewhere, use local gravity.
