**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 Inches to Pounds Per Linear Feet

*Example: How many pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 20.38 kilopounds per linear inches?*

As;

1 kilopounds per linear inches = 12000 pounds per linear feet

20.38 kilopounds per linear inches = Y pounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 20.38 times 12000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 20.38 * 12000 / 1 = 244560 pounds per linear feet

Answer is: 244560 pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 20.38 kilopounds per linear inches.
