**Definitions:**

**Pound Per Square Foot** (abbreviations: **psf, or lb/ft2**): is a British (Imperial) and American pressure unit which is directly related to the psi pressure unit by a factor of 144 (1 sq ft = 12 in x 12 in = 144 sq in). Where, 1 pound per square foot equals 47.8803 pascals.

**Kilogram Per Centimeter Cube** (abbreviations: **kg/cm2, or kgpcm2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength interms of kilogram per centimeter cube.

## How to Convert Pounds Per Square Feet to Kilograms Per Centimeters Cube

*Example: How many kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 49.79 pounds per square feet?*

As;

1 pounds per square feet = 0.00048825097650195 kilograms per centimeters cube

49.79 pounds per square feet = Y kilograms per centimeters cube

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

Y equals 49.79 times 0.00048825097650195 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 49.79 * 0.00048825097650195 / 1 = 0.024310016120032 kilograms per centimeters cube

Answer is: 0.024310016120032 kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 49.79 pounds per square feet.
