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?


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.
