## How to Convert Kilonewtons to Poundals

To convert a kilonewton measurement to a poundal measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One kilonewton is equal to 7,233.013923 poundals, so use this simple formula to convert:

The force in poundals is equal to the kilonewtons multiplied by 7,233.013923.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kilonewtons to poundals using the formula above.

Kilonewtons and poundals 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.

## 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 × fts^{2}
