**Definitions:**

**Kilogram Per Centimeter Cube** (abbreviations: **kg/cm2, or kgpcm2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength interms of kilogram per centimeter cube.

**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 Kilograms Per Centimeters Cube to Kilopounds Per Square Feet

*Example: How many kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 36.5 kilograms per centimeters cube?*

As;

1 kilograms per centimeters cube = 2.048126984127 kilopounds per square feet

36.5 kilograms per centimeters cube = Y kilopounds per square feet

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

Y equals 36.5 times 2.048126984127 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 36.5 * 2.048126984127 / 1 = 74.756634920635 kilopounds per square feet

Answer is: 74.756634920635 kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 36.5 kilograms per centimeters cube.
