**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.

**Ton Meter** (abbreviations: **t.m, or tm, or ton.meter**): is the moment of force in ton times the distance between reference and application points in meter.

## How to Convert Kilopound Feet to Ton.meters

*Example: How many ton.meters are equivalent to 3.62 kilopound feet?*

As;

1 kilopound feet = 0.13825728 ton.meters

3.62 kilopound feet = Y ton.meters

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

Y equals 3.62 times 0.13825728 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 3.62 * 0.13825728 / 1 = 0.5004913536 ton.meters

Answer is: 0.5004913536 ton.meters are equivalent to 3.62 kilopound feet.
