**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 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.

## How to Convert Newton Meters to Pound Inches

*Example: How many pound inches are equivalent to 42.12 newton meters?*

As;

1 newton meters = 8.8507480314961 pound inches

42.12 newton meters = Y pound inches

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

Y equals 42.12 times 8.8507480314961 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 42.12 * 8.8507480314961 / 1 = 372.79350708662 pound inches

Answer is: 372.79350708662 pound inches are equivalent to 42.12 newton meters.
