## 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:

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.

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 10^{3}. 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 *lb _{F}*. For example, 1 pound-force can be written as 1 lbf or 1 lb

_{F}.

Pound-force can be expressed using the formula:
1 lbf = 32.174049 lbfts^{2}
