**Definitions:**

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

**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 Inches to Newton Meters

*Example: How many newton meters are equivalent to 16.6 kilopound inches?*

As;

1 kilopound inches = 112.98480043059 newton meters

16.6 kilopound inches = Y newton meters

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

Y equals 16.6 times 112.98480043059 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 16.6 * 112.98480043059 / 1 = 1875.5476871477 newton meters

Answer is: 1875.5476871477 newton meters are equivalent to 16.6 kilopound inches.
