1 Pound Force Foot (lbf∙ft)

=

1.35582 Newton Meter (N∙m)

Pound Force Foot : The pound force-foot, or pound-foot (lb•ft or lbf•ft) is a unit of torque which is a pseudovector. It is equal to 1.3558179483314004 newton meters. It is defined as the torque created by one pound force acting at a perpendicular distance of one foot from a pivot point. The unit pound-foot is in order to minimize confusion with the foot-pound as a unit of work.

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 Pound Force Foot to Newton Meter Conversion

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

1lbf∙ft = 1.35582N∙m

The torque τ in newton meter (N∙m) is equal to the torque τ in pound force foot (lbf∙ft) times 1.35582, that conversion formula:

τ(N∙m) = τ(lbf∙ft) × 1.35582

One Pound Force Foot is equal to 1.35582 Newton Meter:

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

One Newton Meter is equal to 0.73756 Pound Force Foot:

1N∙m = 1N∙m × 0.73756 = 0.73756lbf∙ft

τ(N∙m) = 5(lbf∙ft) × 1.35582 = 6.7791N∙m
