## How to Convert Kilograms Per Square Centimeter to Pounds Per Square Inch

To convert a kilogram per square centimeter measurement to a pound per square inch measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio.

Since one kilogram per square centimeter is equal to 14.223358 pounds per square inch, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The pressure in pounds per square inch is equal to the kilograms per square centimeter multiplied by 14.223358.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kilograms per square centimeter to pounds per square inch using the formula above.

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

## 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 formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.^{[1]}

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 kgfcm^{2}

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

## 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 lbfin^{2}

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