**Definitions:**

**Kilopound Foot** (abbreviations: **kips.ft, or kips ft, or kip ft, or kilopound.foot**): is the moment of force in kilopound times the distance between reference and application points in foot.

**Newton Meter** (abbreviations: **N.m, or nm, or newton.meter**): is the moment of force in newton times the distance between reference and application points in meter.

## How to Convert Kilopound Feet to Newton Meters

*Example: How many newton meters are equivalent to 49.66 kilopound feet?*

As;

1 kilopound feet = 1355.8176051671 newton meters

49.66 kilopound feet = Y newton meters

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 49.66 times 1355.8176051671 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 49.66 * 1355.8176051671 / 1 = 67329.902272596 newton meters

Answer is: 67329.902272596 newton meters are equivalent to 49.66 kilopound feet.
