**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.

**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.

## How to Convert Kilograms Per Centimeters Cube to Pounds Per Square Feet

*Example: How many pounds per square feet are equivalent to 5.78 kilograms per centimeters cube?*

As;

1 kilograms per centimeters cube = 2048.126984127 pounds per square feet

5.78 kilograms per centimeters cube = Y pounds per square feet

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

Y equals 5.78 times 2048.126984127 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 5.78 * 2048.126984127 / 1 = 11838.173968254 pounds per square feet

Answer is: 11838.173968254 pounds per square feet are equivalent to 5.78 kilograms per centimeters cube.
