How to Convert Pounds Per Square Foot to Pascals

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

To convert a pound per square foot measurement to a pascal measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One pound per square foot is equal to 47.880208 pascals, so use this simple formula to convert:

pascals = pounds per square foot × 47.880208

The pressure in pascals is equal to the pounds per square foot multiplied by 47.880208.

For example, here's how to convert 5 pounds per square foot to pascals using the formula above.
5 psf = (5 × 47.880208) = 239.401042 Pa

Pounds per square foot and pascals 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.

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.
