What Is a Poundal?

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 × ft / s2

What Is a Micronewton?

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 millionths, or 10-6. Micronewtons can be abbreviated as μN; for example, 1 micronewton can be written as 1 μN.
