In this context, the newton-meter (Nm) is occasionally employed as a unit of work or energy, and it is equivalent to the joule, the SI unit of energy. It is defined in this context as the energy transmitted to an object by a one-newton force acting on that item in the direction of its motion over a one-meter distance.

The newton-meter is used as a measure of work or energy because the joule, the SI (International System of Units) unit of energy, is dimensionally equal to the newton-meter.

A foot-pound (ft-lb or ft lb) is a unit of effort or energy in the imperial and US customary measurement systems. It is the energy transferred when a one-pound force is applied across a one-foot linear displacement.

The foot-pound is a British engineering unit based on the foot-pound-second (FPS) system. The FPS system is based on the foot as a unit of length, the avoirdupois pound as a measure of mass or force, and the second as a unit of time.

1 Nm = 0.7375621493 ft lbf
1 ft lbf = 1.3558179483 Nm

Example: convert 15 Nm to ft lbs:
410 Nm = 410 × 0.7375621493 ft lbf = 302.400481213 ft lbf
