Convert Megapascal to Pound Per Square Foot (mpa to psf)

In next fields, kindly type your value in the text box under title [ From: ] to convert from megapascal to pound per square foot (mpa to psf). 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.

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.

How to Convert Megapascals to Pounds Per Square Feet

Example: How many pounds per square feet are equivalent to 95.41 megapascals?


1 megapascals = 20885.459731138 pounds per square feet

95.41 megapascals = Y pounds per square feet

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

Y equals 95.41 times 20885.459731138 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 95.41 * 20885.459731138 / 1 = 1992681.7129479 pounds per square feet

Answer is: 1992681.7129479 pounds per square feet are equivalent to 95.41 megapascals.
