**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.

**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 Inches to Ton.meters

*Example: How many ton.meters are equivalent to 12.8 kilopound inches?*

As;

1 kilopound inches = 0.01152144 ton.meters

12.8 kilopound inches = Y ton.meters

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

Y equals 12.8 times 0.01152144 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 12.8 * 0.01152144 / 1 = 0.147474432 ton.meters

Answer is: 0.147474432 ton.meters are equivalent to 12.8 kilopound inches.
