Quick question on metering for medium format

I recently obtained a medium format film setup from a family member. The lens is about a 50mm equivalent on 35mm. It's all mechanical and has no meter. I also have an old Nikon N90s with a 50mm lens.

If I meter a scene with the N90s--bearing in mind that the focal lengths of the two lenses are essentially the same--can I use the exact same meter reading? BTW, I realize some films will behave differently, etc...will take notes and compare the metered reading to the actual result...

Sorry for the noobish question...thanks for any input.
