Pound Force-Second (lbf-s) is a unit in the category of Linear momentum. It is also known as pound second. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Pound Force-Second (lbf-s) has a dimension of MLT-1 where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit N-s by multiplying its value by a factor of 4.44822161526.
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 Linear momentum include A.u. of Linear Momentum (a.u.), Bole (g-cm/s), Gram-Centimeter Per Second (g-cm/s), and Newton-Second (N-s).
