Its measured in Force per distance. So it could be pounds per inch or newtons per meters or newtons per millimeter...

Good grief.  That's a standard unit for measuring spring rate.  Do some research on your own.  Ask a teacher.  Read a book.

I think the language barrier wins this one. If you don't know that "#" means "pound", then "#/in" is quite perplexing. Not sure I'd be able to deduce the equivalent if I were English as a second language.

Not being a native english speaker...I didn't get it at first. I made the connection with the pound key on a phone...
