**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 Inch** (abbreviations: **kips.in, or kips in, or kilopound.inch**): is the moment of force in kilopound times the distance between reference and application points in inch.

## How to Convert Newton Meters to Kilopound Inches

*Example: How many kilopound inches are equivalent to 11.4 newton meters?*

As;

1 newton meters = 0.0088507480314961 kilopound inches

11.4 newton meters = Y kilopound inches

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

Y equals 11.4 times 0.0088507480314961 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 11.4 * 0.0088507480314961 / 1 = 0.10089852755906 kilopound inches

Answer is: 0.10089852755906 kilopound inches are equivalent to 11.4 newton meters.
