How to Convert Micronewtons to Poundals

To convert a micronewton measurement to a poundal measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One micronewton is equal to 7.233E-6 poundals, so use this simple formula to convert:

poundals = micronewtons × 7.233E-6

The force in poundals is equal to the micronewtons multiplied by 7.233E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000 micronewtons to poundals using the formula above.
500,000 μN = (500,000 × 7.233E-6) = 3.616507 pdl

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


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.


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
