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.

Millimeter Of Mercury (abbreviations: mm Hg, or mmHg): is a manometric unit of pressure, equal to 133.322387415 pascals. It is the extra pressure generated by a column of mercury of one millimeter high.


How to Convert Pounds Per Square Feet to Millimeters Of Mercury

Example: How many Millimeters of Mercury are equivalent to 34.29 pounds per square feet?


As;

1 pounds per square feet = 0.35912706210891 Millimeters of Mercury

34.29 pounds per square feet = Y Millimeters of Mercury

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

Y equals 34.29 times 0.35912706210891 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 34.29 * 0.35912706210891 / 1 = 12.314466959714 Millimeters of Mercury

Answer is: 12.314466959714 Millimeters of Mercury are equivalent to 34.29 pounds per square feet.
