How to Convert Pounds Per Linear Inches to Kilopounds Per Linear Feet

Example: How many kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 7.76 pounds per linear inches?


As;

1 pounds per linear inches = 0.012 kilopounds per linear feet

7.76 pounds per linear inches = Y kilopounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 7.76 times 0.012 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 7.76 * 0.012 / 1 = 0.09312 kilopounds per linear feet

Answer is: 0.09312 kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 7.76 pounds per linear inches.
