Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

One newton is equal to 0.22481 pound-force (lbf). One foot is equal to 0.3048 meters. Using this info:
Code: Select all
1 n | 0.22481 lbf | 0.3048 m
----|-------------|---------
 m  |      n      |    ft
Now cancel n over n, and m over m to yield:
1 · 0.22481 lbf · 0.3048
---------------------------
ft

for 0.0685 lbf/ft per Nm.

This conversion is wrong, Torque is Ft-Lbs not Ft/Lbs.

The correct conversion is (N-m)*.7376 = Ft Lbs

Or, one could use the torque converter on this very website:

:wink:

By plugging in 1 FtLb and converting,
1 FtLb = 12 InLb =1.35582 Nm

Enter you data in the "pound-force inch" box of the converter and hit "convert" Read answer in the Nm box.

or multiply your data by the ratio 1.35582 Nm/12 in-lb

How about just dividing newton meters by 1.3558 to get your ft. lb. ?

here is an example 40 Nm / 1.3558 = 29.5 ft. lb.
