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 Kilopounds Per Linear Inches to Pounds Per Linear Feet

Example: How many pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 0.27 kilopounds per linear inches?


As;

1 kilopounds per linear inches = 12000 pounds per linear feet

0.27 kilopounds per linear inches = Y pounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 0.27 times 12000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 0.27 * 12000 / 1 = 3240 pounds per linear feet

Answer is: 3240 pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 0.27 kilopounds per linear inches.
