**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 56.94 pound feet?*

As;

1 pound feet = 1.3558176051671 newton meters

56.94 pound feet = Y newton meters

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

Y equals 56.94 times 1.3558176051671 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 56.94 * 1.3558176051671 / 1 = 77.200254438212 newton meters

Answer is: 77.200254438212 newton meters are equivalent to 56.94 pound feet.
