How to Convert Pound-force to Kilonewtons

Convert pound-force to kilonewtons with this simple formula:

kilonewtons = pound-force × 0.004448

Converting a pound-force force measurement to a kilonewton measurement involves multiplying the force by the conversion ratio to find the result. One pound-force is equal to 0.004448 kilonewtons, so to convert simply multiply by 0.004448.

For example:
5 lbf = (5 × 0.004448) = 0.022241 kN

Pound-force and kilonewtons are both units used to measure force. Learn more about force and find more force measurement conversion calculators. Pound-force is a force measurement and can be abbreviated as lbf, for example 1 lbf. Kilonewtons are an SI derived unit of force and can be abbreviated as kN, for example 1 kN.
