**Definitions:**

**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.

**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 Ton.meters to Kilopound Feet

*Example: How many kilopound feet are equivalent to 17.34 ton.meters?*

As;

1 ton.meters = 7.2328921847732 kilopound feet

17.34 ton.meters = Y kilopound feet

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

Y equals 17.34 times 7.2328921847732 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 17.34 * 7.2328921847732 / 1 = 125.41835048397 kilopound feet

Answer is: 125.41835048397 kilopound feet are equivalent to 17.34 ton.meters.
