## How to Convert Pounds Per Square Feet to Atmospheres

### Example: How many Atmospheres are equivalent to 13.05 pounds per square feet?

As;

1 pounds per square feet = 0.00047267423142553 Atmospheres

13.05 pounds per square feet = Y Atmospheres

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

Y equals 13.05 times 0.00047267423142553 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 13.05 * 0.00047267423142553 / 1 = 0.0061683987201032 Atmospheres

Answer is: 0.0061683987201032 Atmospheres are equivalent to 13.05 pounds per square feet.
