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.
