kg/cm2 To PSI Calculator: Convert Kilograms Per Cm2 To PSI (+Chart)

When it comes to units of pressure, you will sometimes need to convert kg/cm2 to PSI. Basically, we are converting kilograms per square centimeter to pounds per square inch. We will help you with this pressure unit conversion with a kg/cm2 to PSI calculator, formula (manual calculation), and 0.01-1000 kg/cm2 to PSI conversion chart.

Let’s start with the online calculator (just input kg/cm2 or kilograms per square centimeter, and you will get the PSI equivalent right away):

 

Alright, let’s look at how many PSI is 10 kg/cm2 just to demonstrate how this calculator works. Insert ’10’ into the kg/cm2 input field, hit ‘Calculate’, and you get this result (screenshot):

We can see right away that 50 kg/cm2 is equivalent to 711.17 PSI.

Let’s have a look at the formula behind this conversion:

kg/cm2 To PSI Formula

We are dealing with two pressure units here. kg/cm2 is a pressure on 1 kg mass exerted on 1 square centimeter of area. PSI is also a pressure, but here, 1 pound of mass is exerting pressure on 1 square inch of area.

kg/cm2 is a bigger unit than PSI because a bigger mass (kg is bigger than a pound) exerts pressure on a small area (cm2 is smaller than inch2). Namely, here is the quantitative relationship between these two units of pressure:

1 kg/cm2 = 14.223343334285 PSI

Namely, 1 kg/cm2 is equal to 14.22 PSI (rounded up to 2 decimal points). Based on this, we can write the following kg/cm2 to PSI formula:

PSI = kg/cm2 × 14.223343334285

In order to convert kg/cm2 to PSI, we need to multiply kg/cm2 by a 14.14.223343334285 factor.

Quick Example: How many PSI is 10 kg/cm2? Let’s just insert 10 kg/cm2 into the equation above like this:

PSI (10 kg/cm2) = 10 kg/cm2 × 14.223343334285 = 142.23 PSI

Calculating manually, we see that 10 kg/cm2 is equal to 142.23 PSI. You can use the calculator above to check this result.

We made a bunch of these conversions, converting from 0.01 – 1000 kg/cm2 to PSI. Here is the full conversion chart that you can easily use:
