How to Convert Nanonewtons to Pound-force

To convert a nanonewton measurement to a pound-force measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One nanonewton is equal to 2.2481E-10 pound-force, so use this simple formula to convert:

pound-force = nanonewtons × 2.2481E-10

The force in pound-force is equal to the nanonewtons multiplied by 2.2481E-10.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanonewtons to pound-force using the formula above.
5 nN = (5 × 2.2481E-10) = 1.124E-9 lbf

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


One nanonewton is equal to 1/1,000,000,000 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 nanonewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "nano" is the prefix for 10-9. Nanonewtons can be abbreviated as nN, for example 1 nanonewton can be written as 1 nN.


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
