**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 Inch** (abbreviation: **kips/in**): is a force in kilopounds applied over a unit length in linear inch.

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

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

As;

1 newton per linear meters = 5.7101486E-6 kilopounds per linear inches

17.3 newton per linear meters = Y kilopounds per linear inches

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

Y equals 17.3 times 5.7101486E-6 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 17.3 * 5.7101486E-6 / 1 = 9.878557078E-5 kilopounds per linear inches

Answer is: 9.878557078E-5 kilopounds per linear inches are equivalent to 17.3 newton per linear meters.
