## What is Kilo Newton per Square Meter Unit ?

Kilo Newton per square meter is a measurement of pressure.

## What is Pound Per Square Feet - All You need to know.

PSF stands for pounds per square foot/feet. It is used as a unit of pressure. it is a British (Imperial) unit.

Definition

PSF can be defined as the amount of pressure or stress of a pound of force per square foot of area. The symbol of psi is lb/f2 or lbf/f2.

PSF is commonly used in many pressure measuring applications like wind force calculation, building design, etc.

Following are the major conversion for the PSI unit.

• 1 PSF= 47.8803 Pascals (SI unit conversion)
• 1 PSI= 0.000478803 Bar
• 1 PSI= 0.000472541 atmospheres
• 1 PSI= 0.359131 Torr

### What does Pressure mean?

Pressure is a kind of force. In the language of physics, a force is an object that changes or tries to change its state by acting on it or that changes or tries to change its motion by acting on a moving object.

For example, if someone pushes against a wall, the force is applied whether it changes its position or not. This effort is called force. On the other hand, the force exerted on a single area is called pressure.

This means that if we apply a force in a single case, it will be a force.

Pressure = (force ÷ area)

As an example, it is easy to take a photo with a pin because the area is less. Again, more pressure is required in the area.

The Unit of Pressure

Pressure scalar quantity, because it has value but has no direction. The SI unit of pressure is Pascal, which is equal to Newton per square meter (N/m²). Since an object or group of objects under pressure can act on its surroundings, the pressure is also measured as static energy in a single volume. It is related to the density of energy and can be expressed in joules unit per cubic meter (joules/m³, which is equal to Pascal). To make this concept precise, we use the idea of pressure. The pressure is defined to be the amount of force exerted per area.

Thanks for reading this article! Hopefully, it helps you understand what pressure is and how we measure the pressure of an object.

### How to convert Kilo Newton per Square Meter to Pound Per Square Feet : Detailed Description

Kilo Newton per Square Meter (kN/sqm.) and Pound Per Square Feet (psf) are both units of Pressure. On this page, we provide a handy tool for converting between kN/sqm. and psf. To perform the conversion from kN/sqm. to psf, follow these two simple steps:

Steps to solve

Have you ever needed to or wanted to convert Kilo Newton per Square Meter to Pound Per Square Feet for anything? It's not hard at all:

Step 1

• Find out how many Pound Per Square Feet are in one Kilo Newton per Square Meter. The conversion factor is 20.89 psf per kN/sqm..

Step 2

• Let's illustrate with an example. If you want to convert 10 Kilo Newton per Square Meter to Pound Per Square Feet, follow this formula: 10 kN/sqm. x 20.89 psf per kN/sqm. = psf. So, 10 kN/sqm. is equal to psf.
• To convert any kN/sqm. measurement to psf, use this formula: kN/sqm. = psf x 20.89. The Pressure in Kilo Newton per Square Meter is equal to the Pound Per Square Feet multiplied by 20.89. With these simple steps, you can easily and accurately convert Pressure measurements between kN/sqm. and psf using our tool at Pyron Converter.

Question: How many Pound Per Square Feet are there in 1 Kilo Newton per Square Meter ?

Answer: There are 20.89 Pound Per Square Feet in 1 Kilo Newton per Square Meter. To convert from kN/sqm. to psf, multiply your figure by 20.89 (or divide by 0.04786979415988511).

Question: How many Kilo Newton per Square Meter are there in 1 psf ?

Answer: There are 0.04786979415988511 Kilo Newton per Square Meter in 1 Pound Per Square Feet. To convert from psf to kN/sqm., multiply your figure by 0.04786979415988511 (or divide by 20.89).

Question: What is 1 kN/sqm. equal to in psf ?

Answer: 1 kN/sqm. (Kilo Newton per Square Meter) is equal to 20.89 in psf (Pound Per Square Feet).

Question: What is the difference between kN/sqm. and psf ?

Answer: 1 kN/sqm. is equal to 20.89 in psf. That means that kN/sqm. is more than a 20.89 times bigger unit of Pressure than psf. To calculate kN/sqm. from psf, you only need to divide the psf Pressure value by 20.89.

Question: What does 5 kN/sqm. mean ?

Answer: As one kN/sqm. (Kilo Newton per Square Meter) equals 20.89 psf, therefore, 5 kN/sqm. means psf of Pressure.

Question: How do you convert the kN/sqm. to psf ?

Answer: If we multiply the kN/sqm. value by 20.89, we will get the psf amount i.e; 1 kN/sqm. = 20.89 psf.

Question: How much psf is the kN/sqm. ?

Answer: 1 Kilo Newton per Square Meter equals 20.89 psf i.e; 1 Kilo Newton per Square Meter = 20.89 psf.
