**Definitions:**

**Atmosphere** (abbreviation: **atm**): is a unit of standard pressure, equal to 101325 Pa, or 1.01325 bar.

**Kilopound Per Square Foot** (abbreviations: **ksf, or kips/ft2**): is a British (Imperial) and American pressure unit which is directly related to the ksi pressure unit by a factor of 144 (1 sq ft = 12 in x 12 in = 144 sq in). Where, 1 kilopound per square foot equals 47.8803 kilopascals.

## How to Convert Atmospheres to Kilopounds Per Square Feet

*Example: How many kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 87.18 Atmospheres?*

As;

1 Atmospheres = 2.11562064 kilopounds per square feet

87.18 Atmospheres = Y kilopounds per square feet

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 87.18 times 2.11562064 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 87.18 * 2.11562064 / 1 = 184.4398073952 kilopounds per square feet

Answer is: 184.4398073952 kilopounds per square feet are equivalent to 87.18 Atmospheres.
