Definitions:

Kilopound Per Square Foot (abbreviations: ksf, or kips/ft2): is a British (Imperial) and American pressure unit which is directly related to the ksi pressure unit by a factor of 144 (1 sq ft = 12 in x 12 in = 144 sq in). Where, 1 kilopound per square foot equals 47.8803 kilopascals.

Kilopascal (abbreviations: kPa, or kN/m2): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength. It is one kilonewton per square meter. It is named after the French polymath Blaise Pascal.

How to Convert Kilopounds Per Square Feet to Kilopascals

Example: How many kilopascals are equivalent to 59.73 kilopounds per square feet?


As;


1 kilopounds per square feet = 47.8803 kilopascals


59.73 kilopounds per square feet = Y kilopascals


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


Y equals 59.73 times 47.8803 over 1


(i.e.) Y = 59.73 * 47.8803 / 1 = 2859.890319 kilopascals


Answer is: 2859.890319 kilopascals are equivalent to 59.73 kilopounds per square feet.
