How to Convert Millinewtons to Poundals

To convert a millinewton measurement to a poundal measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One millinewton is equal to 0.007233 poundals, so use this simple formula to convert:

poundals = millinewtons × 0.007233

The force in poundals is equal to the millinewtons multiplied by 0.007233.

For example, here's how to convert 5 millinewtons to poundals using the formula above.
5 mN = (5 × 0.007233) = 0.036165 pdl

Millinewtons and poundals 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.

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
