**Definitions:**

**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.

**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.

## How to Convert Kilonewton Meters to Kilopound Feet

*Example: How many kilopound feet are equivalent to 3.17 kilonewton meters?*

As;

1 kilonewton meters = 0.73756233595801 kilopound feet

3.17 kilonewton meters = Y kilopound feet

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

Y equals 3.17 times 0.73756233595801 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 3.17 * 0.73756233595801 / 1 = 2.3380726049869 kilopound feet

Answer is: 2.3380726049869 kilopound feet are equivalent to 3.17 kilonewton meters.
