In next fields, kindly type your value in the text box under title [ From: ] to convert from kilopascal to pound per square inch (kpa to psi). As you type your value, the answer will be automatically calculated and displayed in the text box under title [ To: ].


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.

Pound Per Square Inch (abbreviations: psi, or lb/in2): is a unit of pressure or of stress based on avoirdupois units. It is the pressure resulting from a force of one pound-force applied to an area of one square inch.

How to Convert Kilopascals to Pounds Per Square Inches

Example: How many pounds per square inches are equivalent to 68.93 kilopascals?


1 kilopascals = 0.145038 pounds per square inches

68.93 kilopascals = Y pounds per square inches

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

Y equals 68.93 times 0.145038 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 68.93 * 0.145038 / 1 = 9.99746934 pounds per square inches

Answer is: 9.99746934 pounds per square inches are equivalent to 68.93 kilopascals.
