Kilopascal (abbreviations: kPa, or kN/m2): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength. It is one kilonewton per square meter. It is named after the French polymath Blaise Pascal.

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 Kilopascals to Kilopounds Per Square Feet

### Example: How many kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 51 kilopascals?

As;

1 kilopascals = 0.0208854 kilopounds per square feet

51 kilopascals = Y kilopounds per square feet

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

Y equals 51 times 0.0208854 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 51 * 0.0208854 / 1 = 1.0651554 kilopounds per square feet

Answer is: 1.0651554 kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 51 kilopascals.
