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

## How to Convert Kilonewtons Per Linear Meters to Kilopounds Per Linear Inches

*Example: How many kilopounds per linear inches are equivalent to 20.85 Kilonewtons per linear meters?*

As;

1 Kilonewtons per linear meters = 0.0057101486 kilopounds per linear inches

20.85 Kilonewtons per linear meters = Y kilopounds per linear inches

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

Y equals 20.85 times 0.0057101486 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 20.85 * 0.0057101486 / 1 = 0.11905659831 kilopounds per linear inches

Answer is: 0.11905659831 kilopounds per linear inches are equivalent to 20.85 Kilonewtons per linear meters.
