**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.

**Pascal** (abbreviations: **Pa, or N/m2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength. It is one newton per square meter. It is named after the French polymath Blaise Pascal.

## How to Convert Kilopounds Per Square Feet to Pascals

*Example: How many pascals are equivalent to 59.2 kilopounds per square feet?*

As;

1 kilopounds per square feet = 47880.246861601 pascals

59.2 kilopounds per square feet = Y pascals

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

Y equals 59.2 times 47880.246861601 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 59.2 * 47880.246861601 / 1 = 2834510.6142068 pascals

Answer is: 2834510.6142068 pascals are equivalent to 59.2 kilopounds per square feet.
