How to Convert Poundals to Micronewtons

To convert a poundal measurement to a micronewton measurement, multiply the force by the conversion ratio. One poundal is equal to 138,254.953 micronewtons, so use this simple formula to convert:

micronewtons = poundals × 138,254.953

The force in micronewtons is equal to the poundals multiplied by 138,254.953.

For example, here's how to convert 5 poundals to micronewtons using the formula above.
5 pdl = (5 × 138,254.953) = 691,274.765 μN

Poundals and micronewtons 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 × fts2

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.
