## Conversion Formula

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

X pounds per square inch * cf = Y megapascals

where

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

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

Y = the result (in megapascals)

*Example*

Let's suppose that you have a value of pressure of 538 pounds per square inch and want to express it in megapascals.

538 psi = (538 × 0.00689475728) MPa

538 psi = 3.70937941664 MPa

## Conversion factor

1 pound per square inch is equal to 0.00689475728 megapascal

(1 psi = 0.00689475728 MPa )
