**Definitions:**

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

**Newton Per Linear Meter** (abbreviations: **N/m, or Npm**): is a force in newton applied over a unit length in linear meter.

## How to Convert Kilonewtons Per Linear Meters to Newton Per Linear Meters

*Example: How many newton per linear meters are equivalent to 83.48 Kilonewtons per linear meters?*

As;

1 Kilonewtons per linear meters = 1000 newton per linear meters

83.48 Kilonewtons per linear meters = Y newton per linear meters

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

Y equals 83.48 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 83.48 * 1000 / 1 = 83480 newton per linear meters

Answer is: 83480 newton per linear meters are equivalent to 83.48 Kilonewtons per linear meters.
