## How to Convert Kilograms per Square Meter to Pounds per Square Inch

To convert a measurement in kilograms per square meter to a measurement in pounds per square inch, multiply the pressure by the following conversion ratio: 0.001422 pounds per square inch/kilogram per square meter.

Since one kilogram per square meter is equal to 0.001422 pounds per square inch, you can use this simple formula to convert:

pounds per square inch = kilograms per square meter × 0.001422

The pressure in pounds per square inch is equal to the pressure in kilograms per square meter multiplied by 0.001422.

For example, here's how to convert 500 kilograms per square meter to pounds per square inch using the formula above.
pounds per square inch = (500 kgf/m² × 0.001422) = 0.711168 psi

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

## What Are 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 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/m² is expressing a change in weight relative to a change in area.

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 kgf / m2

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

## 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 / in2

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