How to Convert Nanonewtons to Poundals

To convert a nanonewton measurement to a poundal measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One nanonewton is equal to 7.233E-9 poundals, so use this simple formula to convert:

poundals = nanonewtons × 7.233E-9

The force in poundals is equal to the nanonewtons multiplied by 7.233E-9.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanonewtons to poundals using the formula above.
5 nN = (5 × 7.233E-9) = 3.6165E-8 pdl

Nanonewtons and poundals 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.


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
