## 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}

## Micronewtons

One micronewton is equal to 1/1,000,000 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 micronewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10^{-6}. Micronewtons can be abbreviated as *μN*, for example 1 micronewton can be written as 1 μN.
