**Definitions:**

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

**Kilonewton Per Linear Meter** (abbreviations: **kN/m, or kNpm**): is a force in kilonewton applied over a unit length in linear meter.

## How to Convert Kilopounds Per Linear Feet to Kilonewtons Per Linear Meters

*Example: How many Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 43.5 kilopounds per linear feet?*

As;

1 kilopounds per linear feet = 14.593899243416 Kilonewtons per linear meters

43.5 kilopounds per linear feet = Y Kilonewtons per linear meters

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

Y equals 43.5 times 14.593899243416 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 43.5 * 14.593899243416 / 1 = 634.8346170886 Kilonewtons per linear meters

Answer is: 634.8346170886 Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 43.5 kilopounds per linear feet.
