**Definitions:**

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

**Tonne Per Linear Meter** (abbreviations: **t/m, or tpm**): is a force in tonne applied over a unit length in linear meter.

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

*Example: How many tonnes per linear meters are equivalent to 82.85 pounds per linear feet?*

As;

1 pounds per linear feet = 0.0014881889763779 tonnes per linear meters

82.85 pounds per linear feet = Y tonnes per linear meters

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

Y equals 82.85 times 0.0014881889763779 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 82.85 * 0.0014881889763779 / 1 = 0.12329645669291 tonnes per linear meters

Answer is: 0.12329645669291 tonnes per linear meters are equivalent to 82.85 pounds per linear feet.
