**Definitions:**

**Newton Meter** (abbreviations: **N.m, or nm, or newton.meter**): is the moment of force in newton times the distance between reference and application points in meter.

**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 Newton Meters to Kilopound Feet

*Example: How many kilopound feet are equivalent to 27.87 newton meters?*

As;

1 newton meters = 0.00073756233595801 kilopound feet

27.87 newton meters = Y kilopound feet

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

Y equals 27.87 times 0.00073756233595801 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 27.87 * 0.00073756233595801 / 1 = 0.02055586230315 kilopound feet

Answer is: 0.02055586230315 kilopound feet are equivalent to 27.87 newton meters.
