›› Definition: Pound

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/sē, or exactly 196,133/6096 ft/sē, or approximately 32.174 05 ft/sē).

›› Definition: Kilonewton

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

So 1 kilonewton = 103 newtons.

The definition of a newton is as follows:

In physics, the newton (symbol: N) is the SI unit of force, named after Sir Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics. It was first used around 1904, but not until 1948 was it officially adopted by the General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM) as the name for the mks unit of force.
