Pounds per square foot and kilograms per square centimeter 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.

## Kilograms Per Square Centimeter

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

The kilogram per square centimeter is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. A kilogram per square centimeter is sometimes also referred to as a kilogram per square centimetre or kilogram-force per centimeter square. Kilograms per square centimeter can be abbreviated as *kgf/cm²*, for example 1 kilogram per square centimeter can be written as 1 kgf/cm².

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.^{[1]}

The unit is deprecated and not permitted for use with SI units, although it is still in use as some precision measuring devices still use the unit.

Kilograms per square centimeter can be expressed using the formula:

1 kgf/cm^{2} = 1 kgfcm^{2}

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