**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 Inch** (abbreviations: **lb/in, or ppi**): is a force in pounds applied over a unit length in linear inch.

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

*Example: How many pounds per linear inches are equivalent to 27.31 Kilonewtons per linear meters?*

As;

1 Kilonewtons per linear meters = 5.7101484172753 pounds per linear inches

27.31 Kilonewtons per linear meters = Y pounds per linear inches

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

Y equals 27.31 times 5.7101484172753 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 27.31 * 5.7101484172753 / 1 = 155.94415327579 pounds per linear inches

Answer is: 155.94415327579 pounds per linear inches are equivalent to 27.31 Kilonewtons per linear meters.
