4.44822 Newton (N)

Pound Force : The pound-force, or pound is a unit of force in some systems of measurement including British engineering units and British gravitational units. It is equal to the gravitational force exerted on a mass of one avoirdupois pound on the surface of Earth. Its symbol are lb, lbf, and lbf. One pound-force is approximately equal to 4.44822 N.

Newton : Newton is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force. It is the force required to accelerate a mass of one kilogram by one metre per second squared. Its symbol is N. The unit of Newton is equivalent to the units kilogram-meter per squared second (kg•m•s⁻²).
