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

*Example: How many pounds per linear inches are equivalent to 30.8 kilopounds per linear inches?*

As;

1 kilopounds per linear inches = 1000 pounds per linear inches

30.8 kilopounds per linear inches = Y pounds per linear inches

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

Y equals 30.8 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 30.8 * 1000 / 1 = 30800 pounds per linear inches

Answer is: 30800 pounds per linear inches are equivalent to 30.8 kilopounds per linear inches.
