## About Newton Meter to Foot Pound (Nm to ft lb) & Conversion Table

### Newton Meters

**Definition:** A Newton meter (symbol: Nm) is a unit of torque in the International System of Units (SI). It is the torque resulting from a force of one Newton applied perpendicularly to the end of a moment arm that is one meter long.

**History/Origin:** The unit is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work in mechanics. It combines the concepts of force (Newton) and distance (meter) to quantify torque.

### Foot Pounds

**Definition:** A foot pound (symbol: ft lb) is a unit of torque in the Imperial and US customary systems. It represents the torque created by a one-pound force acting at a perpendicular distance of one foot from a pivot point.

**History/Origin:** The foot pound has been used in various applications, particularly in engineering and mechanics, to measure rotational force. It is commonly used in the United States and other countries following the Imperial system.

**Current Use:** The foot pound is widely used in mechanical and automotive industries, as well as in various engineering applications to measure torque and rotational force.

**Conversion Formula:**

To convert Newton meters (Nm) to (Ft lb) foot pounds, use the following formula:

**Foot Pounds = Newton Meters * 0.73756**

This means one Newton meter is approximately equal to 0.73756 foot pounds.

## Newton Meters to Foot Pounds (Nm to ft lb) Converter FAQs

### How do I convert 100 Nm to ft lb?

To convert 100 Nm to foot-pounds:

1. Know that 1 Newton meter is approximately 0.73756 foot-pounds.

2. Use the conversion formula: amount in foot-pounds = amount in Nm × 0.73756.

3. Apply the formula: 100 Nm × 0.73756 ≈ 73.76 foot-pounds.

Thus, 100 Nm is approximately 73.76 foot-pounds.

### How do I convert 50 foot-pounds to Nm?

To convert 50 foot-pounds to Nm:

1. Remember that 1 foot-pound is approximately 1.35582 Newton meters.

2. Use the formula: amount in Nm = amount in foot-pounds × 1.35582.

3. Apply the formula: 50 foot-pounds × 1.35582 ≈ 67.79 Nm.

So, 50 foot-pounds is approximately 67.79 Nm.

### How can I measure torque without a torque wrench?

If you need to measure torque without a torque wrench, try these methods:

1. Use a simple lever and known weight. Torque is the force applied times the length of the lever arm.

2. Use a spring scale. Attach it at a known distance from the pivot point and measure the force applied.

3. Use a digital luggage scale. Attach it to a known length of a lever arm to measure the force applied.

### How do Nm compare to foot-pounds?

One Newton meter is approximately 0.73756 foot-pounds. Conversely, one foot-pound is about 1.35582 Nm.

For reference, 100 Nm is about 73.76 foot-pounds, and 200 Nm is about 147.51 foot-pounds.

### Can I use your tool to convert between Nm and foot-pounds?

Yes, our Newton Meters to Foot Pounds Converter allows you to easily convert between Newton meters and foot-pounds.

Simply input the torque value in Newton meters or foot-pounds, and the tool will automatically calculate and display the conversion result.
