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 0.36 kilograms per centimeters cube?


1 kilograms per centimeters cube = 2048.126984127 pounds per square feet

0.36 kilograms per centimeters cube = Y pounds per square feet

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

Y equals 0.36 times 2048.126984127 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 0.36 * 2048.126984127 / 1 = 737.32571428571 pounds per square feet

Answer is: 737.32571428571 pounds per square feet are equivalent to 0.36 kilograms per centimeters cube.
