**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 Inch** (abbreviations: **lb/in, or ppi**): is a force in pounds applied over a unit length in linear inch.

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

*Example: How many pounds per linear inches are equivalent to 48.8 newton per linear meters?*

As;

1 newton per linear meters = 0.0057101484172752 pounds per linear inches

48.8 newton per linear meters = Y pounds per linear inches

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

Y equals 48.8 times 0.0057101484172752 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 48.8 * 0.0057101484172752 / 1 = 0.27865524276303 pounds per linear inches

Answer is: 0.27865524276303 pounds per linear inches are equivalent to 48.8 newton per linear meters.
