**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.

**Bar** (abbreviation: **bar**): is a metric (still not approved by the International System of Units, SI) unit of pressure. It is exactly equal to 100,000 Pa and slightly lower than the current average atmospheric pressure on Earth, at sea level.

## How to Convert Kilopounds Per Square Feet to Bars

*Example: How many Bars are equivalent to 41.67 kilopounds per square feet?*

As;

1 kilopounds per square feet = 0.4788195512212 Bars

41.67 kilopounds per square feet = Y Bars

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

Y equals 41.67 times 0.4788195512212 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 41.67 * 0.4788195512212 / 1 = 19.952410699388 Bars

Answer is: 19.952410699388 Bars are equivalent to 41.67 kilopounds per square feet.
