Strong Cobb
Explanation:
Newton (N), Kilopond (KP) or Strong Cobb (SC).


Strong-Cobb Unit (SC)
an ad hoc unit of force previously used to measure the hardness of tablets in the pharmaceutical industry. The Strong-Cobb test machine applied pressure using a hand-operated air pump, and the hardness was read on a gauge marked in 30 arbitrary units called Strong-Cobb units. It is generally believed that 1.4 Strong-Cobb units represented roughly 1 kilogram of force, so each Strong-Cobb unit represented roughly 0.7 kilogram of force or about 7 newtons.
