**Definitions:**

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

**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 Inches to Newton Per Linear Meters

*Example: How many newton per linear meters are equivalent to 51.1 kilopounds per linear inches?*

As;

1 kilopounds per linear inches = 175126.79092099 newton per linear meters

51.1 kilopounds per linear inches = Y newton per linear meters

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

Y equals 51.1 times 175126.79092099 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 51.1 * 175126.79092099 / 1 = 8948979.0160627 newton per linear meters

Answer is: 8948979.0160627 newton per linear meters are equivalent to 51.1 kilopounds per linear inches.
