Please provide values below to convert newton meter [N*m] to foot-pound [ft*lbf], or vice versa.
Definition: The newton-meter (N·m) is sometimes used as a unit of work or energy and in this context is equal to the joule, the SI unit of energy. In this use, it is defined as the energy transferred to an object by a one newton force acting on that object in the direction of its motion over a distance of one meter.
History/origin: The use of the newton-meter as a unit of work or energy is derived from the fact that the joule, the SI (International System of Units) unit of energy, is dimensionally equivalent to the newton-meter.
Current use: The newton-meter is more commonly used as a unit of torque rather than as a unit of work or energy. As such, the use of the newton-meter as a unit of work or energy is discouraged to avoid confusion regarding whether energy or torque is being expressed.
Definition: A foot-pound (ft·lb or ft·lbf) is a unit of work or energy in the imperial and United States customary systems of units. It is defined as the energy transferred when a force of one pound-force is applied over a linear displacement of one foot.
History/origin: The foot-pound is an English Engineering unit that is part of the British Gravitational system, based on the foot-pound-second (FPS) system. The FPS system is built using the units of foot for length, avoirdupois pound for mass or force, and the second for time.
Current use: The foot-pound is used in countries that have not adopted the International System of Units (SI). The United States is one of the largest countries where the foot-pound is still used in certain applications, though even in the US, the joule is preferred in most scientific contexts.

Nm to ft-lbs Converter
This Nm to ft-lbs converter is a simple tool that converts between four different units of torque. We will teach how to convert newton-meters to foot pounds and provide you with handy conversion tables, where you can look up any value you need.
Read on to learn why we need to use these units in the first place, how to convert between them, and why the kg-cm unit of torque doesn't make much sense!
What do Nm and ft-lbs measure?
Newton-meters (Nm for short) and foot-pounds (ft-lbs) are units of torque, also called the moment of force or the rotational force. Torque measures the tendency of an object to rotate if you apply some force to it.
Imagine an object, such as a lever, that has one fixed point. We will call that stationary point the pivot point. If you start pushing or pulling the lever in a straight line, the object will begin to rotate around that pivot point. The further from the pivot point you apply the force, the bigger the rotation.
The product of the force you apply and the distance from the pivot point is called torque. If you're a fan of the SI unit system, you will probably measure it in newton-meters. If, however, you use the FPS (foot-pound-second) system, you might be more familiar with the unit of foot-pounds.
|💡 Remember that foot pounds and pounds-force are not the same unit, although their symbols are quite similar. You can express torque in foot pounds (ft-lbs), but not in pounds-force (lbf) - that is a measure of force.|
The conversion from Nm to ft-lbs is very simple. You can, of course, use our torque conversion calculator, but it's straightforward to calculate it by hand, too! All you need to remember is that 1 Nm is equal to 0.7376 ft-lbs.
The conversion table below might come in handy, should you need to convert the most fundamental values of torque. If your value doesn't appear in the table, you might want to give our Nm to ft-lbs conversion calculator a try!

How to convert ft-lbs to Nm?
If you're trying the opposite torque units conversion, don't worry: it's equally simple! This time, all you need to know is that 1 ft-lb is equivalent to 1.3558 Nm. This means that to convert from foot-pounds to newton-meters, you need to multiply the value you have by the factor of 1.3558.
For your convenience, we have prepared a table with the simplest conversions listed out. If your value doesn't appear in this table, go ahead and input it into the second field of our Nm to ft-lbs converter!

Torque conversion calculator: example of use
Let's imagine you're working with gears. You're setting up a gear train consisting of three different wheels and you want the output torque to be equal to 12 ft-lbs. Unfortunately, the dynamometer you have displays the measured value in newton-meters only. What should the reading of the dynamometer be?
Check which unit you're working with. You know the value is 12 ft-lbs.
You also know that one ft-lb is equivalent to 1.3558 Nm.
All you have to do is multiply these two values:
The dynamometer needs to display a value of 16.27 Nm.
You can also use our Nm to ft-lbs converter to save some time!
Other units of torque - kg-cm to Nm and J/rad to Nm
Even though the most popular units displayed on a torque wrench are Nm and ft-lbs, there are also other units you might find quite handy. Our calculator will automatically convert any value you input into two additional units: kg-cm and J/rad.
kg-cm are units of torque that, interestingly, we usually write down with improper notation. You probably noticed that when you try to convert kg-cm to any other SI units, you will get a different unit than that for newtons multiplied by meters! To make this notation correct, you should add a letter F, writing down kgF-cm. In this situation, kgF means kilograms of force, which are simply kilograms multiplied by the gravitational acceleration, g.
If you want to convert kg-cm to Nm, all you need to do is multiply the first value by 0.09807 - one-hundredth of the gravitational acceleration of Earth:
J/rad are also alternative units of torque, commonly used when you need the value of torque in calculations of work or power. These units are equivalent to Nm:

››Definition: Foot pound
In physics, a foot-pound force (symbol ft·lbf or ft·lbf), usually abbreviated to foot-pound, is an Imperial and U.S. customary unit of mechanical work, or energy, although in scientific fields one commonly uses the equivalent metric unit of the joule (J). There are approximately 1.356 J/ft·lbf, or exactly 1.355 817 948 331 400 4 J/ft·lbf.
