**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.

**Millimeter Of Mercury** (abbreviations: **mm Hg, or mmHg**): is a manometric unit of pressure, equal to 133.322387415 pascals. It is the extra pressure generated by a column of mercury of one millimeter high.

## How to Convert Kilopounds Per Square Inches to Millimeters Of Mercury

*Example: How many Millimeters of Mercury are equivalent to 40.9 kilopounds per square inches?*

As;

1 kilopounds per square inches = 51714.330040854 Millimeters of Mercury

40.9 kilopounds per square inches = Y Millimeters of Mercury

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

Y equals 40.9 times 51714.330040854 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 40.9 * 51714.330040854 / 1 = 2115116.0986709 Millimeters of Mercury

Answer is: 2115116.0986709 Millimeters of Mercury are equivalent to 40.9 kilopounds per square inches.
