# Convert foot-pound to newton meter

## What is a foot-pound?

Both British and Americans stick to their common metrics, despite the recognition of the systematic options. For instance, different units for mass and distance are quite widespread. One pound in terms of force corresponds to 4.448222 newtons and one foot is approximately equal to 0.3048 m.

These two options are also applied together in a foot-pound that is depicted as ft lb. It describes energy or work and is popular among the engineers in the English-speaking countries.

Taking into account the definition, one feet pound reveals the amount of energy that is required for a corresponding force to move an object through such a distance. The standard option that correlates with this one is the joule.

It can be easily transformed if needed. For this, one has to keep in mind the common correlations. Thus, one ft lb corresponds to:

- 1.355 817 joules;
- 13558179.4833 erg;
- 0.3238 calories.

## What is a newton meter?

What is a newton meter? Let's start with newton. This is a standard metric for the evaluation of force, named after a famous scientist.

There is also a kilogram-force (kgf) option that is familiar and understandable. For example, a person weighs 70 kg, this is exactly the force with which he presses on a horizontal surface.

However, kgf is not recognized internationally. For this, we have newtons that are widely used in mechanical engineering and the auto industry. It’s easy to convert them into kilogram-forces, since 1 kgf = 9.8 or approximately 10 N.

Now, if you take a lever one meter long, put it on a screw and apply a force of one newton (1 N) to the opposite end, then a moment will appear on it when tightening of one newton meter or 1 nm. If you apply a force of 10 N, you’ll get 10 nm and so on. Thus, it is the force multiplied by the length of the lever.

## How to Convert foot-pound to newton meter

To convert ft lb to nm, you might employ an uncomplicated modification aspect. One foot-pound is about = to 1.35582 Nm.

Here's how you might accomplish the foot pounds to newton meters transformation:

- Remember the digit of foot-pounds you enjoy to transform to Newton meters.
- Multiply the digit of foot-pounds by the transformation element (1.35582) to receive the comparable value in Nm.

For illustration, 100 ft-pd: N-m = 100 ft•lb × 1.35582 ≈ 135.582 N•m

So, 100 ft-pd is roughly analogous to 135.582 N meters. This method allows you to transform torque units without relying on online instruments.

## How many foot-pounds in a newton meter

The discrepancy among these elements is rooted in their respective height techniques. Newton meters are employed in the metric procedure, primarily in scientific and engineering applications. At the identical duration, foot-pd belongs to the SI, generally employed in the USA and other nations. Transforming between ft lbs to nm involves operating a modification element of around 0.73756.
