You may be looking for Isaac Newton instead.

A Newton (abbreviated N) is the metric measure of force, named for Isaac Newton, who did extensive research in physics, including his famous three laws of Physics.

One Newton is equal to one kilogram times one meter per second squared, or $\mathrm{N}=\mathrm{kg}\times \frac{\mathrm{m}}{\mathrm{s}^2}$. This is because $F = ma$, which means force (Newtons) equals mass (kilograms) times acceleration (meters per second squared).
