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

Example: How many pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 8.57 tonnes per linear meters?


As;

1 tonnes per linear meters = 671.95767195767 pounds per linear feet

8.57 tonnes per linear meters = Y pounds per linear feet

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

Y equals 8.57 times 671.95767195767 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 8.57 * 671.95767195767 / 1 = 5758.6772486772 pounds per linear feet

Answer is: 5758.6772486772 pounds per linear feet are equivalent to 8.57 tonnes per linear meters.
