**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.

**Pound Foot** (abbreviations: **lb.ft, or lb ft, or pound.foot**): is the moment of force in pound times the distance between reference and application points in foot.

## How to Convert Kilonewton Meters to Pound Feet

*Example: How many pound feet are equivalent to 49.44 kilonewton meters?*

As;

1 kilonewton meters = 737.56233595801 pound feet

49.44 kilonewton meters = Y pound feet

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

Y equals 49.44 times 737.56233595801 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 49.44 * 737.56233595801 / 1 = 36465.081889764 pound feet

Answer is: 36465.081889764 pound feet are equivalent to 49.44 kilonewton meters.
