**Definitions:**

**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.

**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.

## How to Convert Pound Feet to Kilonewton Meters

*Example: How many kilonewton meters are equivalent to 30.87 pound feet?*

As;

1 pound feet = 0.001355817605167 kilonewton meters

30.87 pound feet = Y kilonewton meters

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

Y equals 30.87 times 0.001355817605167 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 30.87 * 0.001355817605167 / 1 = 0.041854089471507 kilonewton meters

Answer is: 0.041854089471507 kilonewton meters are equivalent to 30.87 pound feet.
