**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.

**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.

## How to Convert Ton.meters to Newton Meters

*Example: How many newton meters are equivalent to 8.71 ton.meters?*

As;

1 ton.meters = 8896.4409787864 newton meters

8.71 ton.meters = Y newton meters

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

Y equals 8.71 times 8896.4409787864 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 8.71 * 8896.4409787864 / 1 = 77488.00092523 newton meters

Answer is: 77488.00092523 newton meters are equivalent to 8.71 ton.meters.
