## How to Convert Pound Inches to Kilopound Feet

*Example: How many kilopound feet are equivalent to 6.84 pound inches?*

As;

1 pound inches = 8.3333333333333E-5 kilopound feet

6.84 pound inches = Y kilopound feet

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

Y equals 6.84 times 8.3333333333333E-5 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 6.84 * 8.3333333333333E-5 / 1 = 0.00057 kilopound feet

Answer is: 0.00057 kilopound feet are equivalent to 6.84 pound inches.
