**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.

**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 Kilonewton Meters to Ton.meters

*Example: How many ton.meters are equivalent to 15.61 kilonewton meters?*

As;

1 kilonewton meters = 0.1124045 ton.meters

15.61 kilonewton meters = Y ton.meters

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

Y equals 15.61 times 0.1124045 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 15.61 * 0.1124045 / 1 = 1.754634245 ton.meters

Answer is: 1.754634245 ton.meters are equivalent to 15.61 kilonewton meters.
