**Definitions:**

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

**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 Inches to Newton Per Linear Meters

*Example: How many newton per linear meters are equivalent to 10.33 pounds per linear inches?*

As;

1 pounds per linear inches = 175.12679092099 newton per linear meters

10.33 pounds per linear inches = Y newton per linear meters

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

Y equals 10.33 times 175.12679092099 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 10.33 * 175.12679092099 / 1 = 1809.0597502138 newton per linear meters

Answer is: 1809.0597502138 newton per linear meters are equivalent to 10.33 pounds per linear inches.
