convert lbs/inch to N/m

You get:

1 pounds force / inch = 175.126835 Newtons / meter

I'm not sure its possible, without knowing the distance at which the measurement is taken.

At the moment you are trying to convert a force to deflect a linier displacement to a force to deflect a angular displacement.

With the distance to displacement measured the then a angular displacement can be calculated and then its just the force that needs its units converted.
Success is how far you you bounce back up after being knocked down
