Definitions:

Kilonewton Per Linear Meter (abbreviations: kN/m, or kNpm): is a force in kilonewton applied over a unit length in linear meter.

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


How to Convert Kilonewtons Per Linear Meters to Kilopounds Per Linear Feet

Example: How many kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 13.03 Kilonewtons per linear meters?


As;

1 Kilonewtons per linear meters = 0.0685217832 kilopounds per linear feet

13.03 Kilonewtons per linear meters = Y kilopounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 13.03 times 0.0685217832 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 13.03 * 0.0685217832 / 1 = 0.892838835096 kilopounds per linear feet

Answer is: 0.892838835096 kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 13.03 Kilonewtons per linear meters.
