How to convert newton-meters (Nm) to foot-pounds (ft/lb)
One foot-pound is equal to 1.356 newton-meters. To convert your Nm figure to ft/lb, simply divide it by 1.356.
Newton-meters and foot-pounds are both units of torque in the International System of Units. Torque is a measure of the rotational force that causes an object to turn about an axis. 1
If your calculation involves inch-pounds, you can convert between inch-pounds and foot-pounds here.
