Force Units Conversions

In physics, force is that which, when applied to an object of mass, tends to set that object in motion by causing an acceleration. Force is mathematically equal to the time rate of change of the momentum of the mass on which it acts. This is commonly referred to as Newton's Second Law of Motion, where  F = m * a.











Standard units = Newton (N) for metric, Pound (lb) for English


  dyne newton pound poundal gram force kg force
1 dyn = 1 10-5 2.248 * 10-6 7.233 * 10-5 1.020 * 10-3 1.020 * 10-6
1 N = 105 1 0.2248 7.233 102.0 0.1020
1 lb = 4.448 * 105 4.448 1 32.17 453.6 0.4536
1 pdl = 1.383 * 104 0.1383 3.108 * 10-2 1 14.10 1.410 * 10-2
1 gf = 980.7 9.807 * 10-3 2.205 * 10-3 7.093 * 10-2 1 0.001
1 kgf = 9.807 * 105 9.807 2.205 70.93 1000 1
