**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.

**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 Pound Feet to Ton.meters

*Example: How many ton.meters are equivalent to 70.26 pound feet?*

As;

1 pound feet = 0.00013825728 ton.meters

70.26 pound feet = Y ton.meters

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

Y equals 70.26 times 0.00013825728 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 70.26 * 0.00013825728 / 1 = 0.0097139564928 ton.meters

Answer is: 0.0097139564928 ton.meters are equivalent to 70.26 pound feet.
