Pound (abbreviations: lb, or lbs, or ps): is a unit of force used in some systems of measurement including English Engineering units and the British Gravitational System. Also, it is a unit of mass used in the imperial, United States customary and other systems of measurement.

Newton (abbreviation: N): is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force. It is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics, specifically Newton's second law of motion. One newton is the force needed to accelerate one kilogram of mass at the rate of one metre per second squared in direction of the applied force.

How to Convert Pounds to Newtons

Example: How many newtons are equivalent to 49.58 pounds?


1 pounds = 4.4482204893932 newtons

49.58 pounds = Y newtons

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

Y equals 49.58 times 4.4482204893932 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 49.58 * 4.4482204893932 / 1 = 220.54277186411 newtons

Answer is: 220.54277186411 newtons are equivalent to 49.58 pounds.
