**Definitions:**

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

**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 Inches to Newton Meters

*Example: How many newton meters are equivalent to 54.22 pound inches?*

As;

1 pound inches = 0.11298480043059 newton meters

54.22 pound inches = Y newton meters

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

Y equals 54.22 times 0.11298480043059 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 54.22 * 0.11298480043059 / 1 = 6.1260358793464 newton meters

Answer is: 6.1260358793464 newton meters are equivalent to 54.22 pound inches.
