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

## How to Convert Kilopounds Per Square Inches to Atmospheres

*Example: How many Atmospheres are equivalent to 87.93 kilopounds per square inches?*

As;

1 kilopounds per square inches = 68.065132886962 Atmospheres

87.93 kilopounds per square inches = Y Atmospheres

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

Y equals 87.93 times 68.065132886962 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 87.93 * 68.065132886962 / 1 = 5984.9671347506 Atmospheres

Answer is: 5984.9671347506 Atmospheres are equivalent to 87.93 kilopounds per square inches.
