**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 Pound Feet to Kilopound Feet

*Example: How many kilopound feet are equivalent to 7.81 pound feet?*

As;

1 pound feet = 0.001 kilopound feet

7.81 pound feet = Y kilopound feet

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

Y equals 7.81 times 0.001 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 7.81 * 0.001 / 1 = 0.00781 kilopound feet

Answer is: 0.00781 kilopound feet are equivalent to 7.81 pound feet.
