**Definitions:**

**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.

**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.

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

*Example: How many kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 19.89 kilopounds per square inches?*

As;

1 kilopounds per square inches = 70.308140616281 kilograms per centimeters cube

19.89 kilopounds per square inches = Y kilograms per centimeters cube

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

Y equals 19.89 times 70.308140616281 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 19.89 * 70.308140616281 / 1 = 1398.4289168578 kilograms per centimeters cube

Answer is: 1398.4289168578 kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 19.89 kilopounds per square inches.
