### What does Pound per Square Inch mean?

PSI stands for pounds per square inch. It is used as a unit of pressure.

#### Definition

PSI can be defined as the amount of pressure or stress of a pound of force per square inch of area. The symbol of psi is lb/in² or lbf/in².

PSI is commonly used in many pressure measuring applications like tire pressure, soil bearing capacity, wastewater management, fuel distribution & storage.

Following are the major conversion for the PSI unit.

• 1 PSI= 6894.76 Pascals (SI unit conversion)
• 1 PSI= 0.0689476 Bar
• 1 PSI= 0.068046 atmospheres
• 1 PSI= 51.7149 Torr
• 1 PSI= 2.03602 inHg
• 1 PSI= 27.7076 inches of the water column

## What is Kilopascal ?

Kilopascal is a unit of Pressure

In this unit converter website, we have converter from Kilopascal (kPa) to some other Pressure unit.

### 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 Pound per Square Inch to Kilopascal : Detailed Description

Pound per Square Inch (psi) and Kilopascal (kPa) are both units of Pressure. On this page, we provide a handy tool for converting between psi and kPa. To perform the conversion from psi to kPa, follow these two simple steps:

Steps to solve

Have you ever needed to or wanted to convert Pound per Square Inch to Kilopascal for anything? It's not hard at all:

Step 1

• Find out how many Kilopascal are in one Pound per Square Inch. The conversion factor is 6.89476 kPa per psi.

Step 2

• Let's illustrate with an example. If you want to convert 10 Pound per Square Inch to Kilopascal, follow this formula: 10 psi x 6.89476 kPa per psi = kPa. So, 10 psi is equal to kPa.
• To convert any psi measurement to kPa, use this formula: psi = kPa x 6.89476. The Pressure in Pound per Square Inch is equal to the Kilopascal multiplied by 6.89476. With these simple steps, you can easily and accurately convert Pressure measurements between psi and kPa using our tool at Pyron Converter.

FAQ regarding the conversion between psi and kPa

Question: How many Kilopascal are there in 1 Pound per Square Inch ?

Answer: There are 6.89476 Kilopascal in 1 Pound per Square Inch. To convert from psi to kPa, multiply your figure by 6.89476 (or divide by 0.1450376807894691).

Question: How many Pound per Square Inch are there in 1 kPa ?

Answer: There are 0.1450376807894691 Pound per Square Inch in 1 Kilopascal. To convert from kPa to psi, multiply your figure by 0.1450376807894691 (or divide by 6.89476).

Question: What is 1 psi equal to in kPa ?

Answer: 1 psi (Pound per Square Inch) is equal to 6.89476 in kPa (Kilopascal).

Question: What is the difference between psi and kPa ?

Answer: 1 psi is equal to 6.89476 in kPa. That means that psi is more than a 6.89476 times bigger unit of Pressure than kPa. To calculate psi from kPa, you only need to divide the kPa Pressure value by 6.89476.

Question: What does 5 psi mean ?

Answer: As one psi (Pound per Square Inch) equals 6.89476 kPa, therefore, 5 psi means kPa of Pressure.

Question: How do you convert the psi to kPa ?

Answer: If we multiply the psi value by 6.89476, we will get the kPa amount i.e; 1 psi = 6.89476 kPa.
