What is foot-pound force?

Definition:

The foot-pound force is a unit of energy or work equal to 1.3558179 joules (1 ft-lbf = 1.3558179 J), the SI derived unit of energy. It is also equal to 1.3558179x109 nanojoules (nJ), or 0.0013558179 kilojoules (kJ), or 1.3558179x107 ergs (erg), or 32.1740474 foot-poundal (ft-pdl) or 12 inch-pound force (in-lbf).

The foot-pound force is the work done when a force of one pound-force acts over a distance of one foot (1 ft-lbf = 1 lbf × 1 ft). The pound-force (lbf) is a unit of force while the foot (ft) is a unit of length.

Note:
The SI is an abbreviation for the International System of Units.
