**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.

**Kilogram Per Centimeter Cube** (abbreviations: **kg/cm2, or kgpcm2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength interms of kilogram per centimeter cube.

## How to Convert Kilopounds Per Square Feet to Kilograms Per Centimeters Cube

*Example: How many kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 3.21 kilopounds per square feet?*

As;

1 kilopounds per square feet = 0.48825097650195 kilograms per centimeters cube

3.21 kilopounds per square feet = Y kilograms per centimeters cube

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

Y equals 3.21 times 0.48825097650195 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 3.21 * 0.48825097650195 / 1 = 1.5672856345713 kilograms per centimeters cube

Answer is: 1.5672856345713 kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 3.21 kilopounds per square feet.
