**Definitions:**

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

**Pound Per Linear Foot** (abbreviations: **lb/ft, or ppf**): is a force in pounds applied over a unit length in linear foot.

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

*Example: How many pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 9.12 kilopounds per linear feet?*

As;

1 kilopounds per linear feet = 1000 pounds per linear feet

9.12 kilopounds per linear feet = Y pounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 9.12 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 9.12 * 1000 / 1 = 9120 pounds per linear feet

Answer is: 9120 pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 9.12 kilopounds per linear feet.
