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 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 Kilopascals to Kilopounds Per Square Inches

Example: How many kilopounds per square inches are equivalent to 41.54 kilopascals?


1 kilopascals = 0.000145038 kilopounds per square inches

41.54 kilopascals = Y kilopounds per square inches

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

Y equals 41.54 times 0.000145038 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 41.54 * 0.000145038 / 1 = 0.00602487852 kilopounds per square inches

Answer is: 0.00602487852 kilopounds per square inches are equivalent to 41.54 kilopascals.
