How to Convert Pounds Per Linear Feet to Kilopounds Per Linear Feet

Example: How many kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 70.5 pounds per linear feet?


As;


1 pounds per linear feet = 0.001 kilopounds per linear feet


70.5 pounds per linear feet = Y kilopounds per linear feet


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


Y equals 70.5 times 0.001 over 1


(i.e.) Y = 70.5 * 0.001 / 1 = 0.0705 kilopounds per linear feet


Answer is: 0.0705 kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 70.5 pounds per linear feet.
