**Definitions:**

**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.

**Kilopound Per Square Foot** (abbreviations: **ksf, or kips/ft2**): is a British (Imperial) and American pressure unit which is directly related to the ksi pressure unit by a factor of 144 (1 sq ft = 12 in x 12 in = 144 sq in). Where, 1 kilopound per square foot equals 47.8803 kilopascals.

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

*Example: How many kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 15.21 Millimeters of Mercury?*

As;

1 Millimeters of Mercury = 0.002784528 kilopounds per square feet

15.21 Millimeters of Mercury = Y kilopounds per square feet

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

Y equals 15.21 times 0.002784528 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 15.21 * 0.002784528 / 1 = 0.04235267088 kilopounds per square feet

Answer is: 0.04235267088 kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 15.21 Millimeters of Mercury.
