**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.

**Kilonewton.meter** (abbreviations: **KN.m, or kn m**): is the moment of force in kilonewton times the distance between reference and application points in meter.

## How to Convert Kilopound Inches to Kilonewton Meters

*Example: How many kilonewton meters are equivalent to 51.39 kilopound inches?*

As;

1 kilopound inches = 0.11298480043059 kilonewton meters

51.39 kilopound inches = Y kilonewton meters

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

Y equals 51.39 times 0.11298480043059 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 51.39 * 0.11298480043059 / 1 = 5.8062888941279 kilonewton meters

Answer is: 5.8062888941279 kilonewton meters are equivalent to 51.39 kilopound inches.
