Re: Weights and measures
Weight is a force, so if your going to use some subjective context for reference (which is unwise) lb force would be more fitting.
Since neither of you used "pound-force" [lbf] or "pound-mass" [lbm], any argument that one definition is more correct than the other is extremely silly.
The unqualified "pound" should never ever be used in anything but the most informal oral conversations.
