Pound Per Square Foot (abbreviations: psf, or lb/ft2): is a British (Imperial) and American pressure unit which is directly related to the psi pressure unit by a factor of 144 (1 sq ft = 12 in x 12 in = 144 sq in). Where, 1 pound per square foot equals 47.8803 pascals.

Atmosphere (abbreviation: atm): is a unit of standard pressure, equal to 101325 Pa, or 1.01325 bar.


How to Convert Pounds Per Square Feet to Atmospheres

Example: How many Atmospheres are equivalent to 83.7 pounds per square feet?


As;

1 pounds per square feet = 0.00047267423142553 Atmospheres

83.7 pounds per square feet = Y Atmospheres

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

Y equals 83.7 times 0.00047267423142553 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 83.7 * 0.00047267423142553 / 1 = 0.039562833170317 Atmospheres

Answer is: 0.039562833170317 Atmospheres are equivalent to 83.7 pounds per square feet.
