**Definitions:**

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

*Example: How many pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 4.51 tonnes per linear meters?*

As;

1 tonnes per linear meters = 671.95767195767 pounds per linear feet

4.51 tonnes per linear meters = Y pounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 4.51 times 671.95767195767 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 4.51 * 671.95767195767 / 1 = 3030.5291005291 pounds per linear feet

Answer is: 3030.5291005291 pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 4.51 tonnes per linear meters.
