## What Are Kilograms per Square Centimeter?

One kilogram per square centimeter is the pressure of equal to one kilogram-force per square centimeter.

The kilogram per square centimeter is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. A kilogram per square centimeter is sometimes also referred to as a kilogram per square centimetre or kilogram-force per centimeter square. Kilograms per square centimeter can be abbreviated as *kgf/cm²*; for example, 1 kilogram per square centimeter can be written as 1 kgf/cm².

In the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units.^{[1]} For example, kgf/cm² is expressing a change in weight relative to a change in area.

The unit is deprecated and not permitted for use with SI units, although it is still in use as some precision measuring devices still use the unit.

Kilograms per square centimeter can be expressed using the formula:

1 kgf/cm^{2} = 1 kgf / cm^{2}

Pressure in kilograms per square centimeter are equal to the kilogram-force divided by the area in square centimeters.

## What Are Pounds per Square Inch?

One pound per square inch is the pressure of equal to one pound-force per square inch.

The pound per square inch is a US customary and imperial unit of pressure. A pound per square inch is sometimes also referred to as a pound-force per square inch. Pounds per square inch can be abbreviated as *psi*; for example, 1 pound per square inch can be written as 1 psi.

PSI can be expressed using the formula:

1 psi = 1 lbf / in^{2}

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