**Definitions:**

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

**Pound Per Linear Foot** (abbreviations: **lb/ft, or ppf**): is a force in pounds applied over a unit length in linear foot.

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

*Example: How many pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 47.71 newton per linear meters?*

As;

1 newton per linear meters = 0.068521781007303 pounds per linear feet

47.71 newton per linear meters = Y pounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 47.71 times 0.068521781007303 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 47.71 * 0.068521781007303 / 1 = 3.2691741718584 pounds per linear feet

Answer is: 3.2691741718584 pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 47.71 newton per linear meters.
