How to Convert Kilonewtons to Pound-force

To convert a kilonewton measurement to a pound-force measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One kilonewton is equal to 224.80894 pound-force, so use this simple formula to convert:

pound-force = kilonewtons × 224.80894

The force in pound-force is equal to the kilonewtons multiplied by 224.80894.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilonewtons to pound-force using the formula above.
5 kN = (5 × 224.80894) = 1,124.044699 lbf

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

Kilonewtons

One kilonewton is equal to 1,000 newtons, which are equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.

The kilonewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilonewtons can be abbreviated as kN, for example 1 kilonewton can be written as 1 kN.

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
