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

## How to Convert Pounds Per Linear Feet to Kilopounds Per Linear Inches

*Example: How many kilopounds per linear inches are equivalent to 24.6 pounds per linear feet?*

As;

1 pounds per linear feet = 8.3333333333333E-5 kilopounds per linear inches

24.6 pounds per linear feet = Y kilopounds per linear inches

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

Y equals 24.6 times 8.3333333333333E-5 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 24.6 * 8.3333333333333E-5 / 1 = 0.00205 kilopounds per linear inches

Answer is: 0.00205 kilopounds per linear inches are equivalent to 24.6 pounds per linear feet.
