**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.

**Tonne Per Meter Cube** (abbreviations: **t/m2, or tpm2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength interms of tonne per meter cube.

## How to Convert Kilopounds Per Square Inches to Tonnes Per Meters Cube

*Example: How many tonnes per meters cube are equivalent to 99.51 kilopounds per square inches?*

As;

1 kilopounds per square inches = 689.4744825494 tonnes per meters cube

99.51 kilopounds per square inches = Y tonnes per meters cube

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

Y equals 99.51 times 689.4744825494 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 99.51 * 689.4744825494 / 1 = 68609.605758491 tonnes per meters cube

Answer is: 68609.605758491 tonnes per meters cube are equivalent to 99.51 kilopounds per square inches.
