How to Convert Newtons to Pound-force

To convert a newton measurement to a pound-force measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One newton is equal to 0.224809 pound-force, so use this simple formula to convert:

pound-force = newtons × 0.224809

The force in pound-force is equal to the newtons multiplied by 0.224809.

For example, here's how to convert 5 newtons to pound-force using the formula above.
5 N = (5 × 0.224809) = 1.124045 lbf

Newtons and pound-force are both units used to measure force. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Newtons

The newton is a unit to for measuring force equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.

The newton is the SI derived unit for force in the metric system. Newtons can be abbreviated as N, for example 1 newton can be written as 1 N.

Newtons can be expressed using the formula: 1 N = 1 kgms2

Pound-force

Pound-force is a unit of force equal to the force needed to move one pound of mass at a rate of 32.174049 feet per second squared.

The pound-force is a US customary and imperial unit of force. A pound-force is sometimes also referred to as a pound of force. Pound-force can be abbreviated as lbf, and are also sometimes abbreviated as lbF. For example, 1 pound-force can be written as 1 lbf or 1 lbF.

Pound-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 lbf = 32.174049 lbfts2
