When using pressure units, we usually use either MPa or PSI. That is because Pa (Pascal) is a very small unit compared to PSI. To help everybody convert MPa to PSI, we have designed a simple-to-use **MPa to PSI calculator** *(insert MPA, get PSI)* as well as a conversion **chart with 0.01 MPa to 100,000 MPa converted to PSI**.

Let’s first check what MPa and PSI are and how to convert MPa to PSI using a pocket calculator:

**MPa or**is a metric unit of pressure equal to*M*ega*P*ascal**1,000,000 Pa**. 1 Pa or Pascal is a pressure that a force of 1 Newton makes on 1 square meter. Million Pascals or MPa is hence a pressure that 1,000,000 Netwons make on 1 square meter of surface area (1 MPa = 1,000,000 N/m^{2}). Because we are using millions of Pascals, MPa is a bigger unit of pressure than PSI.**PSI or Pounds per Square Inch**is a unit of pressure used in the US and the UK. 1 PSI is a pressure that a force of 1 pound (pound-force) exerts on 1 square inch of surface area (1 PSI = 1 lbn/in^{2}). Compared to MPa, PSI is a smaller unit of pressure.

*How to convert MPa to PSI?*

Easy. To convert megapascals to pounds per square inch, you only need to know 1 conversion rule:

**1 MPa = 145.038 PSI**

Basically, 1 MPa is equal to 145.038 PSI. For quick conversion, you can use 1 MPa is equal to 145 PSI approximation (you will make less than 0.03% conversion error). To convert MPa to PSI, you simply need to multiply the number of MPA by 145.038 (calculator below does this automatically):

*Example 1:* How many PSI is 25 MPa? Here is how you can calculate that:

25 MPa Ã— 145.038Â = **3,625.95 PSI**

25 MPa is equal to 3,625.95 PSI.

*Example 2:* How many PSI is 10 MPa? Here is how you can calculate that:

10 MPa Ã— 145.038 = **1,450.38 PSI**

10 MPa is equal to 1,450.38 PSI.

*Example 3:* How many PSI is 1.5 MPa? Here is how you can calculate that:

1.5 MPa Ã— 145.038 = **217.557 PSI**

1.5 MPa is equal to 217.557 PSI.

As you can see, converting MPa to PSI is quite easy. You can do it with a pocket calculator. To make things simpler still, you can use the following MPa to PSI calculator and consult the conversion chart below the calculator:

## MPa To PSI Calculator

As you can see, this calculator automatically converts megapascals to PSI. Let’s say you want to convert 30 MPa to PSI. Just insert ’30’ and you get the result: 30 MPa is equal to 4,351.14 PSI.
