**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.

**Kilonewton.meter** (abbreviations: **KN.m, or kn m**): is the moment of force in kilonewton times the distance between reference and application points in meter.

## How to Convert Ton.meters to Kilonewton Meters

*Example: How many kilonewton meters are equivalent to 51.58 ton.meters?*

As;

1 ton.meters = 8.8964409787864 kilonewton meters

51.58 ton.meters = Y kilonewton meters

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

Y equals 51.58 times 8.8964409787864 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 51.58 * 8.8964409787864 / 1 = 458.8784256858 kilonewton meters

Answer is: 458.8784256858 kilonewton meters are equivalent to 51.58 ton.meters.
