**Definitions:**

**Pound Per Linear Inch** (abbreviations: **lb/in, or ppi**): is a force in pounds applied over a unit length in linear inch.

**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 Inches to Kilonewtons Per Linear Meters

*Example: How many Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 13.38 pounds per linear inches?*

As;

1 pounds per linear inches = 0.17512679092099 Kilonewtons per linear meters

13.38 pounds per linear inches = Y Kilonewtons per linear meters

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

Y equals 13.38 times 0.17512679092099 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 13.38 * 0.17512679092099 / 1 = 2.3431964625229 Kilonewtons per linear meters

Answer is: 2.3431964625229 Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 13.38 pounds per linear inches.
