## Conversion Formula

By using the online converter calculator on this page, you can calculate how many megapascals are in 'X' pounds per square foot (X is the number of pounds per square foot you want to convert to megapascals). In order to convert a value from pounds per square foot to megapascals (from psf to MPa) simply type the number of pounds per square foot to be converted to megapascals and then click on the 'convert' button. The formula used for converting a specific value from pounds per square foot to megapascals is:

X pounds per square foot * cf = Y megapascals

where

X = the specific value to be converted (in pounds per square foot)

cf = the conversion factor from pounds per square foot to megapascals

Y = the result (in megapascals)

*Example*

Let's suppose that you have a value of pressure of 762 pounds per square foot and want to express it in megapascals.

762 psf = (762 × 4.7880258889E-5) MPa

762 psf = 0.036484757273418 MPa

## Conversion factor

1 pound per square foot is equal to 4.7880258889E-5 megapascal

(1 psf = 4.7880258889E-5 MPa )
