How to Convert Micronewtons to Pound-force

To convert a micronewton measurement to a pound-force measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One micronewton is equal to 2.2481E-7 pound-force, so use this simple formula to convert:

pound-force = micronewtons × 2.2481E-7

The force in pound-force is equal to the micronewtons multiplied by 2.2481E-7.

For example, here's how to convert 5 micronewtons to pound-force using the formula above.
5 μN = (5 × 2.2481E-7) = 1.124E-6 lbf

Micronewtons and pound-force are both units used to measure force. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Micronewtons

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

The micronewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Micronewtons can be abbreviated as μN, for example 1 micronewton can be written as 1 μN.

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 lbF. For example, 1 pound-force can be written as 1 lbf or 1 lbF.

Pound-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 lbf = 32.174049 lbfts2
