## How to Convert Kilonewton to Kilopounds

*Example: How many kilopounds are equivalent to 9.02 kilonewton?*

As;

1 kilonewton = 0.224809 kilopounds

9.02 kilonewton = Y kilopounds

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

Y equals 9.02 times 0.224809 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 9.02 * 0.224809 / 1 = 2.02777718 kilopounds

Answer is: 2.02777718 kilopounds are equivalent to 9.02 kilonewton.
