I am stumped on how to convert my units for the equation for Force of Lift.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F_{L}=C_{L}PA[tex]\frac{v^{2}}{2}[/tex]

My equation comes out to:

F_{L}=(.76764)(.076[tex]\frac{lbm}{ft}[/tex])[tex](\frac{(65.899\frac{ft}{s})^{2}}{2})[/tex]

Still figuring out this equation hypertext stuff. Please help if you can.

I am supposed to get lbf from all this. I think.
