How to Convert Pascals to Pounds Per Square Foot

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

To convert a pascal measurement to a pound per square foot measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One pascal is equal to 0.020885 pounds per square foot, so use this simple formula to convert:

pounds per square foot = pascals × 0.020885

The pressure in pounds per square foot is equal to the pascals multiplied by 0.020885.

For example, here's how to convert 5 pascals to pounds per square foot using the formula above.
5 Pa = (5 × 0.020885) = 0.104427 psf

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

Pascals

The pascal is defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter.

The pascal is the SI derived unit for pressure in the metric system. Pascals can be abbreviated as Pa, for example 1 pascal can be written as 1 Pa.

Pascals can be expressed using the formula:
1 Pa = 1 Nm2

Pressure in pascals is equal to the force in newtons 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.
