## What is the Formula to convert Pound-Force to Newtons?

The formula to convert given force from Pound-Force to Newtons is:

Force_{(Newtons)} = Force_{(Pound-Force)} × 4.448221615254772

Substitute the given value of force in pound-force, i.e., Force_{(Pound-Force)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the force in newtons, i.e., Force_{(Newtons)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider a person pushing a door with a force of 50 pound-force.

Convert this force from pound-force to Newtons.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The force of door in pound-force is:

Force_{(Pound-Force)} = 50

**Formula:**

The formula to convert force from pound-force to newtons is:

Force_{(Newtons)} = Force_{(Pound-Force)} × 4.448221615254772

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight of door, **Force _{(Pound-Force)} = 50** in the above formula.

Force_{(Newtons)} = 50 × 4.448221615254772

Force_{(Newtons)} = 222.4111

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **50 lbf** is equal to **222.4111 N**.

The force of door is **222.4111 N**, in newtons.

### Consider a spring applying 25 pound-force to a compressed object.

Convert this force from pound-force to Newtons.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The force of spring in pound-force is:

Force_{(Pound-Force)} = 25

**Formula:**

The formula to convert force from pound-force to newtons is:

Force_{(Newtons)} = Force_{(Pound-Force)} × 4.448221615254772

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight of spring, **Force _{(Pound-Force)} = 25** in the above formula.

Force_{(Newtons)} = 25 × 4.448221615254772

Force_{(Newtons)} = 111.2055

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **25 lbf** is equal to **111.2055 N**.

The force of spring is **111.2055 N**, in newtons.

## Pound-Force

Pound-force (lbf) is the force exerted by gravity on a one-pound mass. It is a commonly used unit in the United States to describe everyday forces, such as the force exerted by objects or people.

## Newtons

A newton is the standard unit of force in the International System of Units (SI). It is named after Sir Isaac Newton in honor of his work in physics, particularly his second law of motion. One newton is the amount of force needed to accelerate a one-kilogram mass by one meter per second squared. Newtons are widely used to measure forces in engineering, mechanics, and daily life, such as the force you exert when pushing a door.
