The pound-force is a non-SI unit of force or weight (properly abbreviated "lbf" or "lbf"). The pound-force is equal to a mass of one pound multiplied by the standard acceleration due to gravity on Earth (which is defined as exactly 9.806 65 m/s², or exactly 196,133/6096 ft/s², or approximately 32.174 05 ft/s²).

›› Definition: Kilonewton

The SI prefix "kilo" represents a factor of 103, or in exponential notation, 1E3.

So 1 kilonewton = 103 newtons.
