## How to Convert Kilograms Per Square Meter to Pounds Per Square Foot To convert a kilogram per square meter measurement to a pound per square foot measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio.

Since one kilogram per square meter is equal to 0.204816 pounds per square foot, you can use this simple formula to convert:

pounds per square foot = kilograms per square meter × 0.204816

The pressure in pounds per square foot is equal to the kilograms per square meter multiplied by 0.204816.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms per square meter to pounds per square foot using the formula above.
5 kgf/m² = (5 × 0.204816) = 1.024082 psf

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

## Kilograms Per Square Meter

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

The kilogram per square meter is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. A kilogram per square meter is sometimes also referred to as a kilogram per square metre or kilogram-force per meter square. Kilograms per square meter can be abbreviated as kgf/m²; for example, 1 kilogram per square meter can be written as 1 kgf/m².

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.

The unit is deprecated and not permitted for use with SI units.

Kilograms per square meter can be expressed using the formula:
1 kgf/m2 = 1 kgfm2

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

## 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.
