**Definitions:**

**Tonne Per Meter Cube** (abbreviations: **t/m2, or tpm2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength interms of tonne per meter cube.

**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 Tonnes Per Meters Cube to Kilopounds Per Square Feet

*Example: How many kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 8.57 tonnes per meters cube?*

As;

1 tonnes per meters cube = 0.208854 kilopounds per square feet

8.57 tonnes per meters cube = Y kilopounds per square feet

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

Y equals 8.57 times 0.208854 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 8.57 * 0.208854 / 1 = 1.78987878 kilopounds per square feet

Answer is: 1.78987878 kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 8.57 tonnes per meters cube.
