**Definitions:**

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

**Pound Per Linear Inch** (abbreviations: **lb/in, or ppi**): is a force in pounds applied over a unit length in linear inch.

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

*Example: How many pounds per linear inches are equivalent to 71.16 kilopounds per linear feet?*

As;

1 kilopounds per linear feet = 83.333333333333 pounds per linear inches

71.16 kilopounds per linear feet = Y pounds per linear inches

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

Y equals 71.16 times 83.333333333333 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 71.16 * 83.333333333333 / 1 = 5930 pounds per linear inches

Answer is: 5930 pounds per linear inches are equivalent to 71.16 kilopounds per linear feet.
