## How to Convert Pounds per Square Inch to Atmospheres

To convert a measurement in pounds per square inch to a measurement in atmospheres, multiply the pressure by the following conversion ratio: 0.068046 atmospheres/pound per square inch.

Since one pound per square inch is equal to 0.068046 atmospheres, you can use this simple formula to convert:

atmospheres = pounds per square inch × 0.068046

The pressure in atmospheres is equal to the pressure in pounds per square inch multiplied by 0.068046.

For example, here's how to convert 5 pounds per square inch to atmospheres using the formula above.
atmospheres = (5 psi × 0.068046) = 0.340229 atm

## What Are Pounds per Square Inch?

One pound per square inch is the pressure of equal to one pound-force per square inch.

The pound per square inch is a US customary and imperial unit of pressure. A pound per square inch is sometimes also referred to as a pound-force per square inch. Pounds per square inch can be abbreviated as psi; for example, 1 pound per square inch can be written as 1 psi.

PSI can be expressed using the formula:
1 psi = 1 lbf / in2

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

## What Is an Atmosphere?

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.
