**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.

**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 Inches to Pascals

*Example: How many pascals are equivalent to 22.47 kilopounds per square inches?*

As;

1 kilopounds per square inches = 6894744.825494 pascals

22.47 kilopounds per square inches = Y pascals

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

Y equals 22.47 times 6894744.825494 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 22.47 * 6894744.825494 / 1 = 154924916.22885 pascals

Answer is: 154924916.22885 pascals are equivalent to 22.47 kilopounds per square inches.
