How to Convert Nanonewtons to Poundals

To convert a nanonewton measurement to a poundal measurement, divide the force by the conversion ratio.

Since one poundal is equal to 138,254,953 nanonewtons, you can use this simple formula to convert:

poundals = nanonewtons ÷ 138,254,953

The force in poundals is equal to the nanonewtons divided by 138,254,953.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000,000 nanonewtons to poundals using the formula above.
500,000,000 nN = (500,000,000 ÷ 138,254,953) = 3.616507 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 × ft / s2
