The SI system is not based on the foot for length and the pound for mass and force. Those are US units instead.



Length --> meter
Mass --> kilogram
Force --> newton

Note that a newton of force is not the same as a "kilogram" force. The latter is the force Earth'a gravity exerts on a kilogram of mass with an acceleration of #9.81" m/s"^2#. A newton is a kilogram of mass times #1" m/s"^2#.
