How to Convert Atmospheres to Pounds Per Square Foot

Calculators can be used to convert measurements from one unit to another

To convert a atmosphere measurement to a pound per square foot measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One atmosphere is equal to 2,116.218862 pounds per square foot, so use this simple formula to convert:

pounds per square foot = atmospheres × 2,116.218862

The pressure in pounds per square foot is equal to the atmospheres multiplied by 2,116.218862.

For example, here's how to convert 5 atmospheres to pounds per square foot using the formula above.
5 atm = (5 × 2,116.218862) = 10,581.094311 psf

Atmospheres and pounds per square foot are both units used to measure pressure. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Atmospheres

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.

Pounds Per Square Foot

One pound per square foot is the pressure of equal to one pound-force 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 lbfft2

Pressure in pounds per square foot are equal to the pound-force divided by the area in square feet.
