**Definitions:**

**Bar** (abbreviation: **bar**): is a metric (still not approved by the International System of Units, SI) unit of pressure. It is exactly equal to 100,000 Pa and slightly lower than the current average atmospheric pressure on Earth, at sea level.

**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.

## How to Convert Bars to Kilopounds Per Square Feet

*Example: How many kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 18.25 Bars?*

As;

1 Bars = 2.08846944 kilopounds per square feet

18.25 Bars = Y kilopounds per square feet

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

Y equals 18.25 times 2.08846944 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 18.25 * 2.08846944 / 1 = 38.11456728 kilopounds per square feet

Answer is: 38.11456728 kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 18.25 Bars.
