## How to Convert Poundals to Kilogram-force

To convert a poundal measurement to a kilogram-force measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One poundal is equal to 0.014098 kilogram-force, so use this simple formula to convert:

The force in kilogram-force is equal to the poundals multiplied by 0.014098.

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

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

## Poundals

The poundal is a unit equal to the force needed to move one pound of mass at a rate of one foot per second squared.

The poundal is a US customary and imperial unit of force. It's also used in the foot-pound-second (FPS) system of units. Poundals can be abbreviated as *pdl*, for example 1 poundal can be written as 1 pdl.

Poundals can be expressed using the formula:
1 pdl = 1lb × fts^{2}

## Kilogram-force

Kilogram-force is a unit of force equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of 9.80665 meters per second squared.

The kilogram-force is a non-SI metric unit for force. A kilogram-force is sometimes also referred to as a kilopond. Kilogram-force can be abbreviated as *kgf*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *kg _{F}*. For example, 1 kilogram-force can be written as 1 kgf or 1 kg

_{F}.

Kilogram-force can be expressed using the formula:
1 kgf = 9.80665 kgms^{2}
