## How to Convert Pound-force to Meganewtons

To convert a pound-force measurement to a meganewton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One pound-force is equal to 4.4482E-6 meganewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

The force in meganewtons is equal to the pound-force multiplied by 4.4482E-6.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 pound-force to meganewtons using the formula above.

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

## Pound-force

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 *lb _{F}*. For example, 1 pound-force can be written as 1 lbf or 1 lb

_{F}.

Pound-force can be expressed using the formula:
1 lbf = 32.174049 lbfts^{2}

## Meganewtons

One meganewton is equal to 1,000,000 newtons, which are equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.

The meganewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 10^{9}. Meganewtons can be abbreviated as *MN*, for example 1 meganewton can be written as 1 MN.
