**Definitions:**

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

**Newton Per Linear Meter** (abbreviations: **N/m, or Npm**): is a force in newton applied over a unit length in linear meter.

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

*Example: How many newton per linear meters are equivalent to 46.75 kilopounds per linear feet?*

As;

1 kilopounds per linear feet = 14593.899243416 newton per linear meters

46.75 kilopounds per linear feet = Y newton per linear meters

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

Y equals 46.75 times 14593.899243416 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 46.75 * 14593.899243416 / 1 = 682264.7896297 newton per linear meters

Answer is: 682264.7896297 newton per linear meters are equivalent to 46.75 kilopounds per linear feet.
