Kilogram-force

Kilogram-force is a unit of force equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of 9.80665 meters per second squared.

The kilogram-force is a non-SI metric unit for force. A kilogram-force is sometimes also referred to as a kilopond. Kilogram-force can be abbreviated as kgf, and are also sometimes abbreviated as kgF. For example, 1 kilogram-force can be written as 1 kgf or 1 kgF.

Kilogram-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 kgf = 9.80665 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
