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

Example: How many kilopounds per linear inches are equivalent to 93.64 pounds per linear feet?


As;

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

93.64 pounds per linear feet = Y kilopounds per linear inches

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

Y equals 93.64 times 8.3333333333333E-5 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 93.64 * 8.3333333333333E-5 / 1 = 0.0078033333333333 kilopounds per linear inches

Answer is: 0.0078033333333333 kilopounds per linear inches are equivalent to 93.64 pounds per linear feet.
