**Definitions:**

**Tonne Per Linear Meter** (abbreviations: **t/m, or tpm**): is a force in tonne applied over a unit length in linear meter.

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

## How to Convert Tonnes Per Linear Meters to Newton Per Linear Meters

*Example: How many newton per linear meters are equivalent to 11.71 tonnes per linear meters?*

As;

1 tonnes per linear meters = 8896.4409787864 newton per linear meters

11.71 tonnes per linear meters = Y newton per linear meters

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

Y equals 11.71 times 8896.4409787864 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 11.71 * 8896.4409787864 / 1 = 104177.32386159 newton per linear meters

Answer is: 104177.32386159 newton per linear meters are equivalent to 11.71 tonnes per linear meters.
