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.
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.
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/cm2 = 1 kgfcm2
Pressure in kilograms per square centimeter are equal to the kilogram-force divided by the area in square centimeters.

Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!
There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!
Understanding the Metric System
The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.
Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:
- “kilo” – 1,000x larger
- “hecto” – 100x larger
- “deca” – 10x larger
- “deci” – 10x smaller
- “centi” – 100x smaller
- “milli” – 1,000x smaller
There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
