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:

poundals = kilonewtons × 7,233.013923

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.
5 kN = (5 × 7,233.013923) = 36,165.069616 pdl

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 103. 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 × fts2
