Definitions:

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

Pound Per Square Inch (abbreviations: psi, or lb/in2): is a unit of pressure or of stress based on avoirdupois units. It is the pressure resulting from a force of one pound-force applied to an area of one square inch.


How to Convert Pascals to Pounds Per Square Inches

Example: How many pounds per square inches are equivalent to 52.6 pascals?


As;

1 pascals = 0.000145038 pounds per square inches

52.6 pascals = Y pounds per square inches

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

Y equals 52.6 times 0.000145038 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 52.6 * 0.000145038 / 1 = 0.0076289988 pounds per square inches

Answer is: 0.0076289988 pounds per square inches are equivalent to 52.6 pascals.
