**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 Inch** (abbreviations: **ksi, or kips/in2**): is a unit of pressure or of stress based on avoirdupois units. It is the pressure resulting from a force of one kilopound-force applied to an area of one square inch.

## How to Convert Kilograms Per Centimeters Cube to Kilopounds Per Square Inches

*Example: How many kilopounds per square inches are equivalent to 87.86 kilograms per centimeters cube?*

As;

1 kilograms per centimeters cube = 0.014223104056437 kilopounds per square inches

87.86 kilograms per centimeters cube = Y kilopounds per square inches

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

Y equals 87.86 times 0.014223104056437 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 87.86 * 0.014223104056437 / 1 = 1.2496419223986 kilopounds per square inches

Answer is: 1.2496419223986 kilopounds per square inches are equivalent to 87.86 kilograms per centimeters cube.
