**Definitions:**

**Kilopound Per Linear Foot** (abbreviation: **kips/ft**): is a force in kilopounds applied over a unit length in linear foot.

**Kilopound Per Linear Inch** (abbreviation: **kips/in**): is a force in kilopounds applied over a unit length in linear inch.

## How to Convert Kilopounds Per Linear Feet to Kilopounds Per Linear Inches

*Example: How many kilopounds per linear inches are equivalent to 5.98 kilopounds per linear feet?*

As;

1 kilopounds per linear feet = 0.083333333333333 kilopounds per linear inches

5.98 kilopounds per linear feet = Y kilopounds per linear inches

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

Y equals 5.98 times 0.083333333333333 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 5.98 * 0.083333333333333 / 1 = 0.49833333333333 kilopounds per linear inches

Answer is: 0.49833333333333 kilopounds per linear inches are equivalent to 5.98 kilopounds per linear feet.
