**Definitions:**

**Kilopound Per Square Inch** (abbreviations: **ksi, or kips/in2**): is a unit of pressure or of stress based on avoirdupois units. It is the pressure resulting from a force of one kilopound-force applied to an area of one square inch.

**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 Inches to Bars

*Example: How many Bars are equivalent to 41.4 kilopounds per square inches?*

As;

1 kilopounds per square inches = 68.950015375853 Bars

41.4 kilopounds per square inches = Y Bars

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

Y equals 41.4 times 68.950015375853 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 41.4 * 68.950015375853 / 1 = 2854.5306365603 Bars

Answer is: 2854.5306365603 Bars are equivalent to 41.4 kilopounds per square inches.
