**For example,**here's how to convert 5 pounds per square foot to hectopascals using the formula above.

Pounds per square foot and hectopascals 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 lbfft^{2}

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

## Hectopascals

The hectopascal is equal to 100 pascals, which are defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter. The hectopascal is the internationally adopted unit used to measure atmospheric pressure.

The hectopascal is a multiple of the pascal, which is the SI derived unit for pressure. In the metric system, "hecto" is the prefix for 10^{2}. Hectopascals can be abbreviated as *hPa*, for example 1 hectopascal can be written as 1 hPa.
