**Definitions:**

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

*Example: How many Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 58.81 tonnes per linear meters?*

As;

1 tonnes per linear meters = 8.8964409787864 Kilonewtons per linear meters

58.81 tonnes per linear meters = Y Kilonewtons per linear meters

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

Y equals 58.81 times 8.8964409787864 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 58.81 * 8.8964409787864 / 1 = 523.19969396243 Kilonewtons per linear meters

Answer is: 523.19969396243 Kilonewtons per linear meters are equivalent to 58.81 tonnes per linear meters.
