How to Convert Newtons to Poundals

To convert a newton measurement to a poundal measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One newton is equal to 7.233014 poundals, so use this simple formula to convert:

poundals = newtons × 7.233014

The force in poundals is equal to the newtons multiplied by 7.233014.

For example, here's how to convert 5 newtons to poundals using the formula above.
5 N = (5 × 7.233014) = 36.16507 pdl

Newtons and poundals 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

Poundals

The poundal is a unit equal to the force needed to move one pound of mass at a rate of one foot per second squared.

The poundal is a US customary and imperial unit of force. It's also used in the foot-pound-second (FPS) system of units. Poundals can be abbreviated as pdl, for example 1 poundal can be written as 1 pdl.

Poundals can be expressed using the formula: 1 pdl = 1lb × fts2
