How to Convert Pound-force to Micronewtons

To convert a pound-force measurement to a micronewton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One pound-force is equal to 4,448,221.68 micronewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

micronewtons = pound-force × 4,448,221.68

The force in micronewtons is equal to the pound-force multiplied by 4,448,221.68.

For example, here's how to convert 5 pound-force to micronewtons using the formula above.
5 lbf = (5 × 4,448,221.68) = 22,241,108.4 μN

Pound-force and micronewtons 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 lbF. For example, 1 pound-force can be written as 1 lbf or 1 lbF.

Pound-force can be expressed using the formula: 1 lbf = 32.174049 lbfts2

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.
