# Momentum Unit Converter

Momentum Converter

= 4.448 kg·m/s

Multiply by 4.448
for quick conversions

lbf·s × 4.448 = kg·m/s

Solution

To convert lbf·s to kg·m/s, use the conversion factor

1 lbf·s = 4.448 kg·m/s

Then divide both sides of the equation by lbf·s, to get the conversion ratio

1 = 4.448 kg·m/s / lbf·s

Using the conversion ratio to complete the unit conversion, basically multiplying the input by 1, the lbf·s units cancel out, and we are left with kg·m/s units.

1 lbf·s × 4.448 kg·m/s / lbf·s
= 4.448 kg·m/s

## How to Convert Units of Momentum

Conversions are performed by using a conversion factor. By knowing the conversion factor, converting between units can become a simple multiplication problem:

S * C = E

Where S is our starting value, C is our conversion factor, and E is our end converted result.

To simply convert from any unit into momentum SI units of kilogram meter per second, kg·m/s, for example, from 50 pound foot per second, lb·ft/s, just multiply by the value in the right column in the table below.

lb·ft/s into kg·m/s

50 lb·ft/s × XXXXX [kg·m/s / lb·ft/s] = XXXXX kg·m/s

To convert from kg·m/s into units in the left column divide by the value in the right column or, multiply by the reciprocal, 1/x.

To convert among any units in the left column, say from A to B, you can multiply by the factor for A to convert A into kg/m3 then divide by the factor for B to convert out of kg/m3. Or, you can find the single factor you need by dividing the A factor by the B factor.

For example, to convert from lb/ft3 to g/mL you would multiply by 16.018463 then divide by 1000. Or, multiply by 16.018463/1000 = 0.016018463. So, to convert directly from lb/ft3 to g/mL you multiply by 0.016018463.

To understand how to also convert the units follow this example. Say you want to convert from lb/ft3 to lb/in3. You want to convert the foot to inches.  Since you can multiply anything by 1 and still retain the original value, but in different units, set it up so that ft3 will cancel out leaving you with in3.

Since:
1 ft = 12 in, 1 ft / 12 in = 1

We can write the conversion as:
1 lb/ft3 = 1 lb/ft3 * (1 ft / 12 in)3 = 1 lb/ft3 * (1 ft3 / 1728 in3) = 5.787037e-04 lb/in3

And we now have our factor for conversion from lb/ft3 to lb/in3 since 1 * 5.787037e-04 = 5.787037e-04.

Knowing that 1 lb/ft3 = 5.787037e-04 lb/in3 we can now find the conversion factor for converting back. Dividing both sides of the equation by 5.787037e-04 we get 1728 lb/ft3 = 1 lb/in3. So, the conversion factor to multiply by to convert from lb/in3 to lb/ft3 is 1728.
