**Definitions:**

**Newton Per Linear Meter** (abbreviations: **N/m, or Npm**): is a force in newton applied over a unit length in linear meter.

**Kilopound Per Linear Foot** (abbreviation: **kips/ft**): is a force in kilopounds applied over a unit length in linear foot.

## How to Convert Newton Per Linear Meters to Kilopounds Per Linear Feet

*Example: How many kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 17.3 newton per linear meters?*

As;

1 newton per linear meters = 6.85217832E-5 kilopounds per linear feet

17.3 newton per linear meters = Y kilopounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 17.3 times 6.85217832E-5 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 17.3 * 6.85217832E-5 / 1 = 0.00118542684936 kilopounds per linear feet

Answer is: 0.00118542684936 kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 17.3 newton per linear meters.
