How to Convert Millinewtons to Pound-force

To convert a millinewton measurement to a pound-force measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One millinewton is equal to 0.000225 pound-force, so use this simple formula to convert:

pound-force = millinewtons × 0.000225

The force in pound-force is equal to the millinewtons multiplied by 0.000225.

For example, here's how to convert 5 millinewtons to pound-force using the formula above.
5 mN = (5 × 0.000225) = 0.001124 lbf

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

Millinewtons

One millinewton is equal to 1/1,000 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 millinewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. Millinewtons can be abbreviated as mN, for example 1 millinewton can be written as 1 mN.

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
