**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 Inches to Tonnes Per Linear Meters

*Example: How many tonnes per linear meters are equivalent to 28.83 pounds per linear inches?*

As;

1 pounds per linear inches = 0.017858267716535 tonnes per linear meters

28.83 pounds per linear inches = Y tonnes per linear meters

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

Y equals 28.83 times 0.017858267716535 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 28.83 * 0.017858267716535 / 1 = 0.51485385826772 tonnes per linear meters

Answer is: 0.51485385826772 tonnes per linear meters are equivalent to 28.83 pounds per linear inches.
