Kilopound Per Linear Foot (abbreviation: kips/ft): is a force in kilopounds applied over a unit length in linear foot.


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

Example: How many kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 79.8 pounds per linear feet?


As;

1 pounds per linear feet = 0.001 kilopounds per linear feet

79.8 pounds per linear feet = Y kilopounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 79.8 times 0.001 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 79.8 * 0.001 / 1 = 0.0798 kilopounds per linear feet

Answer is: 0.0798 kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 79.8 pounds per linear feet.
