Default What's the conversion formula for Newtons to pounds?

Man I love this site!! I haven't been on a Porsche site since finding this one (for which my wife is eternally grateful, as expensive as EDF is it's still cheaper than Porsche parts!!)!

Here's my question: What's the formula for converting Newtons of thrust to pounds or ounces of thrust?

Thanks

Pounds force = Newtons x .2248

or, inversely,

Newtons = Pounds force x 4.45

You can remember this by the fact that 4 apples (a fruit Newton knew intimately when it fell on his head) weigh approximately one pound!
