**Definitions:**

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

**Pound Per Linear Foot** (abbreviations: **lb/ft, or ppf**): is a force in pounds applied over a unit length in linear foot.

## How to Convert Kilonewtons Per Linear Meters to Pounds Per Linear Feet

*Example: How many pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 4.6 Kilonewtons per linear meters?*

As;

1 Kilonewtons per linear meters = 68.521781007303 pounds per linear feet

4.6 Kilonewtons per linear meters = Y pounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 4.6 times 68.521781007303 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 4.6 * 68.521781007303 / 1 = 315.20019263359 pounds per linear feet

Answer is: 315.20019263359 pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 4.6 Kilonewtons per linear meters.
