**Definitions:**

**Pound Per Linear Foot** (abbreviations: **lb/ft, or ppf**): is a force in pounds applied over a unit length in linear foot.

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

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

*Example: How many Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 78.28 pounds per linear feet?*

As;

1 pounds per linear feet = 0.014593899243416 Kilonewtons per linear meters

78.28 pounds per linear feet = Y Kilonewtons per linear meters

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

Y equals 78.28 times 0.014593899243416 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 78.28 * 0.014593899243416 / 1 = 1.1424104327746 Kilonewtons per linear meters

Answer is: 1.1424104327746 Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 78.28 pounds per linear feet.
