**Definitions:**

**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.

**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.

## How to Convert Newton Meters to Pound Feet

*Example: How many pound feet are equivalent to 2.86 newton meters?*

As;

1 newton meters = 0.73756233595801 pound feet

2.86 newton meters = Y pound feet

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

Y equals 2.86 times 0.73756233595801 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 2.86 * 0.73756233595801 / 1 = 2.1094282808399 pound feet

Answer is: 2.1094282808399 pound feet are equivalent to 2.86 newton meters.
