**Definitions:**

**Pound Per Square Inch** (abbreviations: **psi, or lb/in2**): is a unit of pressure or of stress based on avoirdupois units. It is the pressure resulting from a force of one pound-force applied to an area of one square inch.

**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 Inches to Kilograms Per Centimeters Cube

*Example: How many kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 2.35 pounds per square inches?*

As;

1 pounds per square inches = 0.070307 kilograms per centimeters cube

2.35 pounds per square inches = Y kilograms per centimeters cube

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

Y equals 2.35 times 0.070307 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 2.35 * 0.070307 / 1 = 0.16522145 kilograms per centimeters cube

Answer is: 0.16522145 kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 2.35 pounds per square inches.
