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

Example: How many kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 73.59 pounds per linear inches?


As;


1 pounds per linear inches = 0.012 kilopounds per linear feet


73.59 pounds per linear inches = Y kilopounds per linear feet


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


Y equals 73.59 times 0.012 over 1


(i.e.) Y = 73.59 * 0.012 / 1 = 0.88308 kilopounds per linear feet


Answer is: 0.88308 kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 73.59 pounds per linear inches.
