**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 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 Ton.meters to Kilopound Inches

*Example: How many kilopound inches are equivalent to 88 ton.meters?*

As;

1 ton.meters = 86.794706217278 kilopound inches

88 ton.meters = Y kilopound inches

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

Y equals 88 times 86.794706217278 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 88 * 86.794706217278 / 1 = 7637.9341471205 kilopound inches

Answer is: 7637.9341471205 kilopound inches are equivalent to 88 ton.meters.
