How to Convert Pounds Per Square Foot to Atmospheres

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

To convert a pound per square foot measurement to a atmosphere measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One pound per square foot is equal to 0.000473 atmospheres, so use this simple formula to convert:

atmospheres = pounds per square foot × 0.000473

The pressure in atmospheres is equal to the pounds per square foot multiplied by 0.000473.

For example, here's how to convert 5 pounds per square foot to atmospheres using the formula above.
5 psf = (5 × 0.000473) = 0.002363 atm

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

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.

Atmospheres

The atmosphere is a reference measure of pressure equal to 101,325 pascals or 1,013,250 dynes. The atmosphere was originally defined as the pressure of 760 millimeters of mercury at standard gravity at 0 °C, but was later redefined in 1954 to be equal to 1,013,250 dynes.

Atmospheres can be abbreviated as atm, for example 1 atmosphere can be written as 1 atm.
