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

Example: How many Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 69.97 pounds per linear feet?


As;

1 pounds per linear feet = 0.014593899243416 Kilonewtons per linear meters

69.97 pounds per linear feet = Y Kilonewtons per linear meters

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

Y equals 69.97 times 0.014593899243416 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 69.97 * 0.014593899243416 / 1 = 1.0211351300618 Kilonewtons per linear meters

Answer is: 1.0211351300618 Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 69.97 pounds per linear feet.
