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

Example: How many kilopounds per linear inches are equivalent to 18.87 pounds per linear feet?


As;


1 pounds per linear feet = 8.3333333333333E-5 kilopounds per linear inches


18.87 pounds per linear feet = Y kilopounds per linear inches


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


Y equals 18.87 times 8.3333333333333E-5 over 1


(i.e.) Y = 18.87 * 8.3333333333333E-5 / 1 = 0.0015725 kilopounds per linear inches


Answer is: 0.0015725 kilopounds per linear inches are equivalent to 18.87 pounds per linear feet.
