**Definitions:**

**Pound Foot** (abbreviations: **lb.ft, or lb ft, or pound.foot**): is the moment of force in pound times the distance between reference and application points in foot.

**Newton Meter** (abbreviations: **N.m, or nm, or newton.meter**): is the moment of force in newton times the distance between reference and application points in meter.

## How to Convert Pound Feet to Newton Meters

*Example: How many newton meters are equivalent to 14.61 pound feet?*

As;

1 pound feet = 1.3558176051671 newton meters

14.61 pound feet = Y newton meters

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 14.61 times 1.3558176051671 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 14.61 * 1.3558176051671 / 1 = 19.808495211491 newton meters

Answer is: 19.808495211491 newton meters are equivalent to 14.61 pound feet.
