**Definitions:**

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

**Newton Per Linear Meter** (abbreviations: **N/m, or Npm**): is a force in newton applied over a unit length in linear meter.

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

*Example: How many newton per linear meters are equivalent to 56.43 pounds per linear feet?*

As;

1 pounds per linear feet = 14.593899243416 newton per linear meters

56.43 pounds per linear feet = Y newton per linear meters

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

Y equals 56.43 times 14.593899243416 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 56.43 * 14.593899243416 / 1 = 823.53373430596 newton per linear meters

Answer is: 823.53373430596 newton per linear meters are equivalent to 56.43 pounds per linear feet.
