Definitions:

Tonne Per Linear Meter (abbreviations: t/m, or tpm): is a force in tonne 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 Tonnes Per Linear Meters to Kilopounds Per Linear Feet

Example: How many kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 75.12 tonnes per linear meters?


As;

1 tonnes per linear meters = 0.67195767195767 kilopounds per linear feet

75.12 tonnes per linear meters = Y kilopounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 75.12 times 0.67195767195767 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 75.12 * 0.67195767195767 / 1 = 50.47746031746 kilopounds per linear feet

Answer is: 50.47746031746 kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 75.12 tonnes per linear meters.
