**Definitions:**

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

**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 Inches to Kilonewtons Per Linear Meters

*Example: How many Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 79.47 kilopounds per linear inches?*

As;

1 kilopounds per linear inches = 175.12679092099 Kilonewtons per linear meters

79.47 kilopounds per linear inches = Y Kilonewtons per linear meters

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

Y equals 79.47 times 175.12679092099 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 79.47 * 175.12679092099 / 1 = 13917.326074491 Kilonewtons per linear meters

Answer is: 13917.326074491 Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 79.47 kilopounds per linear inches.
