**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 27.48 Kilonewtons per linear meters?*

As;

1 Kilonewtons per linear meters = 0.0685217832 kilopounds per linear feet

27.48 Kilonewtons per linear meters = Y kilopounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 27.48 times 0.0685217832 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 27.48 * 0.0685217832 / 1 = 1.882978602336 kilopounds per linear feet

Answer is: 1.882978602336 kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 27.48 Kilonewtons per linear meters.
