## How to Convert Pound-force to Nanonewtons

To convert a pound-force measurement to a nanonewton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One pound-force is equal to 4,448,221,680 nanonewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

The force in nanonewtons is equal to the pound-force multiplied by 4,448,221,680.

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

Pound-force and nanonewtons 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}

## Nanonewtons

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.
