Foot-Pound : The foot-pound (symbol: ft•lb) is a measurement unit of energy which is equivalent to 1.3558179483314 joules. It is defined as the amount of energy expended in applying a force of one pound-force through a displacement of one foot. Commonly used in the Engineering and Gravitational Systems in United States customary and imperial units of measure. In additional, the foot-pound is also used as a unit of torque.

Newton-Meter : A newton metre, or newton-metre (also called "moment") is a unit of torque in the SI system. It is equal to the torque resulting from a force of one newton applied perpendicularly to a moment arm which is one metre long. The symbol of newton-metre is N m or N•m. It is also a less commonly used unit of energy, or work, is equal to one joule.

### FAQ about Foot-Pound to Newton-Meter Conversion

1 foot-pound (ft∙lb) is equal to 1.35582 newton-meter (N∙m).

1ft∙lb = 1.35582N∙m

The Energy E in newton-meter (N∙m) is equal to the Energy E in foot-pound (ft∙lb) times 1.35582, that conversion formula:

E(N∙m) = E(ft∙lb) × 1.35582

One Foot-Pound is equal to 1.35582 Newton-Meter:

1ft∙lb = 1ft∙lb × 1.35582 = 1.35582N∙m

One Newton-Meter is equal to 0.73756 Foot-Pound:

1N∙m = 1N∙m × 0.73756 = 0.73756ft∙lb

E(N∙m) = 5(ft∙lb) × 1.35582 = 6.7791N∙m
