**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 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.

## How to Convert Kilonewton Meters to Kilopound Inches

*Example: How many kilopound inches are equivalent to 53.45 kilonewton meters?*

As;

1 kilonewton meters = 8.8507480314961 kilopound inches

53.45 kilonewton meters = Y kilopound inches

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

Y equals 53.45 times 8.8507480314961 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 53.45 * 8.8507480314961 / 1 = 473.07248228347 kilopound inches

Answer is: 473.07248228347 kilopound inches are equivalent to 53.45 kilonewton meters.
