Meganewtons and poundals are both units used to measure force. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


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

The meganewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 106. Meganewtons can be abbreviated as MN; for example, 1 meganewton can be written as 1 MN.


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
