Convert Megapascal to Kilopound Per Square Foot (mpa to ksf)

In next fields, kindly type your value in the text box under title [ From: ] to convert from megapascal to kilopound per square foot (mpa to ksf). As you type your value, the answer will be automatically calculated and displayed in the text box under title [ To: ].


Megapascal (abbreviations: Mpa, or MN/m2, or N/mm2): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength. It is one meganewton per square meter or one newton per square millimeter. It is named after the French polymath Blaise Pascal.

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 Megapascals to Kilopounds Per Square Feet

Example: How many kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 13.45 megapascals?


1 megapascals = 20.885459731138 kilopounds per square feet

13.45 megapascals = Y kilopounds per square feet

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

Y equals 13.45 times 20.885459731138 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 13.45 * 20.885459731138 / 1 = 280.90943338381 kilopounds per square feet

Answer is: 280.90943338381 kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 13.45 megapascals.
