How to Convert Pounds Per Linear Feet to Tonnes Per Linear Meters

Example: How many tonnes per linear meters are equivalent to 42.66 pounds per linear feet?


As;


1 pounds per linear feet = 0.0014881889763779 tonnes per linear meters


42.66 pounds per linear feet = Y tonnes per linear meters


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


Y equals 42.66 times 0.0014881889763779 over 1


(i.e.) Y = 42.66 * 0.0014881889763779 / 1 = 0.063486141732283 tonnes per linear meters


Answer is: 0.063486141732283 tonnes per linear meters are equivalent to 42.66 pounds per linear feet.
