## What is pound per square foot?

The **pound per square foot** (or **pound-force per square foot**) is a unit of pressure equal to 47.880259 pascals (1 psf = 47.880259 Pa), the SI derived unit of pressure. It is also equal to 0.47880259 hectopascals (hPa), or 0.047880259 kilopascals (kPa), or about 0.0004725414 atmospheres (atm), or 4.7880259x10-4 bars (bar), or 0.35913147 millimeters of mercury at 0 °C (mmHg), or 0.19222 inches of water at 4 °C (inH2O), or 0.0069444 pounds per square inch (psi) or 0.35913147 torr (Torr).

The pound per square foot is the pressure that results when a force of one pound-force is applied (uniformly and perpendicularly) on a surface of one square foot. The pound-force (lbf) is a unit of force while the square foot (sq ft) is a unit of area.
