## How to Convert Pounds Per Square Feet to Tonnes Per Meters Cube

### Example: How many tonnes per meters cube are equivalent to 31.15 pounds per square feet?

As;

1 pounds per square feet = 0.00478803 tonnes per meters cube

31.15 pounds per square feet = Y tonnes per meters cube

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

Y equals 31.15 times 0.00478803 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 31.15 * 0.00478803 / 1 = 0.1491471345 tonnes per meters cube

Answer is: 0.1491471345 tonnes per meters cube are equivalent to 31.15 pounds per square feet.
