What Is an Atmosphere?
The atmosphere is a reference measure of pressure equal to 101,325 pascals or 1,013,250 dynes. The atmosphere was originally defined as the pressure of 760 millimeters of mercury at standard gravity at 0 °C, but was later redefined in 1954 to be equal to 1,013,250 dynes.
Atmospheres can be abbreviated as atm; for example, 1 atmosphere can be written as 1 atm.

What Are Pounds per Square Foot?
The pound per square foot is a US customary and imperial unit of pressure. Pounds per square foot can be abbreviated as psf; for example, 1 pound per square foot can be written as 1 psf.
PSF can be expressed using the formula:
1 psf = 1 lbf / ft2
Pressure in pounds per square foot are equal to the pound-force divided by the area in square feet.
