How to Convert Foot Pounds Per Inch to Joules Per Meter


Encountering a conversion of foot-pounds per inch to joules per meter is not entirely uncommon in the scientific community or in college coursework -- particularly when dealing with physical sciences and the measuring of force. There is a quick and easy conversion method available to avoid too much headache.

  • Calculate the initial foot-pounds per inch value. Once you've measure the starting figure, you'll be able to convert with great ease.

  • Multiply your original amount by 53.38. There are 53.38 (rounded to the hundredth) joules per meter in each foot-pound per inch. This number should give you an approximation. If you need a more specific figure, multiply by 53.3786594.

  • Relabel the unit of measurement to joules per meter. Your resulting amount should be accurate to the nearest hundredth, unless you used the extended decimal places for increased accuracy.
