## How to Convert Atmospheres to Pounds Per Square Inches

*Example: How many pounds per square inches are equivalent to 12.95 Atmospheres?*

As;

1 Atmospheres = 14.69181 pounds per square inches

12.95 Atmospheres = Y pounds per square inches

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

Y equals 12.95 times 14.69181 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 12.95 * 14.69181 / 1 = 190.2589395 pounds per square inches

Answer is: 190.2589395 pounds per square inches are equivalent to 12.95 Atmospheres.
