How to Convert Kilonewtons to Poundals

To convert a measurement in kilonewtons to a measurement in poundals, multiply the force by the following conversion ratio: 7,233.013923 poundals/kilonewton.

Since one kilonewton is equal to 7,233.013923 poundals, you can use this simple formula to convert:

poundals = kilonewtons × 7,233.013923

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilonewtons to poundals using the formula above.
poundals = (5 kN × 7,233.013923) = 36,165.069616 pdl

How Many Poundals Are in a Kilonewton?

There are 7,233.013923 poundals in a kilonewton, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kN = 7,233.013923 pdl

What Is a Kilonewton?

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 thousands, or 103. Kilonewtons can be abbreviated as kN; for example, 1 kilonewton can be written as 1 kN.

What Is a Poundal?

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 × ft / s2
