Definitions:

Pound Per Linear Foot (abbreviations: lb/ft, or ppf): is a force in pounds applied over a unit length in linear foot.

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 Pounds Per Linear Feet to Newton Per Linear Meters

Example: How many newton per linear meters are equivalent to 69.76 pounds per linear feet?


As;

1 pounds per linear feet = 14.593899243416 newton per linear meters

69.76 pounds per linear feet = Y newton per linear meters

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

Y equals 69.76 times 14.593899243416 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 69.76 * 14.593899243416 / 1 = 1018.0704112207 newton per linear meters

Answer is: 1018.0704112207 newton per linear meters are equivalent to 69.76 pounds per linear feet.
