What is [tex]g_c[/tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

in pound force. It is said that it is dimensionless

It says in my book that in america where they measure acceleration in feet per s^2 we have:

[tex] 32.1740 \frac{lb_m\cdot ft}{lb_f\cdot s^2}[/tex]

then they say in my book that in SI-units we get:

[tex]g_c=32.1740\frac{0.453593 kg \cdot 0.30408 m}{4.482216 N}=1 [/tex]

what does this mean?
