Compared to Pa and even PSI, GPa is a really big unit of pressure. We will show you how to convert GPa to PSI (gigapascals to pounds per square inch). You can do it manually, or use our **GPa to PSI calculator** *(insert GPa, get PSI)* and **GPa to PSI conversion chart** with *0.0001 GPa to 10,000 GPa converted into PSI*.

Namely, it is important that we understand what we are converting here:

**GPa or**is a unit of pressure equal to*G*iga*Pa*scal*1,000,000,000 Pa*(that’s a billion Pascals). Pa or Pascal is the basic SI unit for measuring pressure, equal to 1 Newton of force being applied to 1 square meter of surface area. GPa or billion of Pascals in a much larger unit than PSI.**PSI or Pounds per Square Inch**is a US and UK unit of pressure. It is equal to 1 pound-force being applied to 1 square inch of surface area. Compared to GPa, PSI is a much smaller unit.

*How to convert GPa to PSI?*

You just need to know how many PSI is 1 GPa. Here is the conversion rule:

**1 GPa = 145,038 PSI**

As you can see, 1 GPa is equal to 145,038 PSI. A good approximation is that 1 gigapascal is equal to about 150,000 pounds per square inch (PSI). To calculate PSI from GPa, you only need to multiply PSI by a factor of 145,038.

*Example:* How many PSI is 7 GPA? Here is how you can convert that:

**145,038 × 7 GPa = 1,015,266 PSI**

In short, 7 GPa is equal to more than a million PSI.

To help with the calculations (better option than a pocket calculator), you can use this automated GPa to PSI calculator, alongside the conversion chart found below the calculator:

## GPa To PSI Calculator

If you want to convert say 18 GPa to PSI, just insert ’18’ in the calculator and you get the result: 18 GPa pressure is equal to 2,610,684 PSI.

Here is the conversion table for matching GPa and PSI pressures:
