**Definitions:**

**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.

**Atmosphere** (abbreviation: **atm**): is a unit of standard pressure, equal to 101325 Pa, or 1.01325 bar.

## How to Convert Kilopounds Per Square Feet to Atmospheres

*Example: How many Atmospheres are equivalent to 12.93 kilopounds per square feet?*

As;

1 kilopounds per square feet = 0.47267453393724 Atmospheres

12.93 kilopounds per square feet = Y Atmospheres

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

Y equals 12.93 times 0.47267453393724 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 12.93 * 0.47267453393724 / 1 = 6.1116817238085 Atmospheres

Answer is: 6.1116817238085 Atmospheres are equivalent to 12.93 kilopounds per square feet.
