Foot-Pound Force (ft-lbf) is a unit in the category of Energy. It is also known as foot pound force, ft lbf, pound foot. This unit is commonly used in the UK, FPS unit systems. Foot-Pound Force (ft-lbf) has a dimension of ML2T-2 where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit J by multiplying its value by a factor of 1.355817948.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).
