Question: A problem of conversion of units SI to FPS



In a course I am looking at, the system of units is mostly in FPS.  Wich I never use.  But they ask sometime to convert it to SI.  But with Maple, I have a problem:

For Force, it use lb that I cannot convert into N

So what unit should I use to convert FPS to SI for the force.


I know that slug*ft*s^(-2) convert to N with no problem.


Thank you for your help.
