**Definitions:**

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

**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 Newton Per Linear Meters to Kilonewtons Per Linear Meters

*Example: How many Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 4.94 newton per linear meters?*

As;

1 newton per linear meters = 0.001 Kilonewtons per linear meters

4.94 newton per linear meters = Y Kilonewtons per linear meters

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

Y equals 4.94 times 0.001 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 4.94 * 0.001 / 1 = 0.00494 Kilonewtons per linear meters

Answer is: 0.00494 Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 4.94 newton per linear meters.
