To work it out by hand...
1 pound-force = 4.4482216 newton
1 foot = 30.48 centimeter
4.4482216/30.48 = 0.145939
You would multipy lb/ft by the above to get N/cm.
Though make sure you didn't mean [b]lb ft[/b] and [b]N cm[/b] instead.
As a Torque or Energy unit, it would be [b]lb ft[/b] not [b]lb/ft[/b], meaning you would multiply the above two numbers, instead of dividing, to get the conversion factor.
lb/ft * 0.145939 = N/cm
lb ft * 135.581794368 = N cm
