Kilopound (abbreviation: kips): is a unit of force, equivalent to 1000 pounds (lb) which is used in some systems of measurement including English Engineering units and the British Gravitational System. Also, it is a unit of mass used in the imperial, United States customary and other systems of measurement.

Kilonewton (abbreviation: kN): is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force where 1 kN = 1000 N. It is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics, specifically Newton's second law of motion.


How to Convert Kilopounds to Kilonewton

Example: How many kilonewton are equivalent to 80.25 kilopounds?


As;

1 kilopounds = 4.4482204893932 kilonewton

80.25 kilopounds = Y kilonewton

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

Y equals 80.25 times 4.4482204893932 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 80.25 * 4.4482204893932 / 1 = 356.9696942738 kilonewton

Answer is: 356.9696942738 kilonewton are equivalent to 80.25 kilopounds.
