Megapascal (MPa) To psi (Pound force per square inch) Conversion
So you want to know how many megapascals in a psi ?
Megapascal (MPa) is a metric pressure unit and equals to 1 000 000 force of newton per square meter which is know as a Pascal. 1 MPa equals to 10 Bar. Because of its high pressure ratings is often used in hydraulic and simular systems.
Psi (Pound force per square inch) To Megapascal (MPa) Conversion
Or do you actually want to findout How many Pound force per square inch in a MPa?
Psi is defined as 1 pound of force applied per square inch. It is the most commanly used pressure unit with in united states and used in numerous applications like used for gas pressures.
1 pound per square inch (psi) equals to 6 894.75729 pascals.

I don't care out psi I wanna know MPa to kilopound per square inch?
Well simply put a kilopound per square inch is just a scaled unit that is derived from psi, 1 ksi is equivalent to a thousand psi.
Used in materials testing, where the tensile strength of a material is measured very high psi. For example A36 steel as a Ultimate strength of 58,000 psi

Finally, the less popular conversion, how to change ksi to Megapascal!
megapascals (MPa = N/mm2) are agin for those big items, we are not talking blood pressure here it's more used measure stiffness or tensile strength of Metal beams for structures. That is because 1 megapascal (1 MPa ≡ 1,000,000 Pa)
An everyday pascal (Pa) is named after the Famous French mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal. A pascal is a measure of force per unit area, defined as one newton per square meter.
FYI, Monsieur Pascal aslo has a programming languge named after him lucky fellow!
