Pound Mass Per Second (lbm/s) is a unit in the category of Mass flow rate. It is also known as pounds/second. Pound Mass Per Second (lbm/s) has a dimension of MT-1 where M is mass, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit kg/s by multiplying its value by a factor of 0.453592.

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).

Other units in the category of Mass flow rate include Gram Per Hour (g/h), Gram Per Minute (g/min), Gram Per Second (g/s), Gram Per Ten Minutes (g/10 min), Kilogram Per Hour (kg/h), Kilogram Per Minute (kg/min), Kilogram Per Second (kg/s), Pound Mass Per Hour (lbm/h), Pound Mass Per Minute (lbm/min), Pound Mass Per Ten Minutes (lbm/10 min), Slug Per Hour (slug/h), Slug Per Minute (slug/min), and Slug Per Second (slug/s).
