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

### Example: How many Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 98.38 pounds per linear feet?

As;

1 pounds per linear feet = 0.014593899243416 Kilonewtons per linear meters

98.38 pounds per linear feet = Y Kilonewtons per linear meters

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

Y equals 98.38 times 0.014593899243416 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 98.38 * 0.014593899243416 / 1 = 1.4357478075673 Kilonewtons per linear meters

Answer is: 1.4357478075673 Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 98.38 pounds per linear feet.
