Kilopascals (KPa) To psi (Pound force per square inch) Conversion

So you want to know how to convert psi into kilopascals ?

Kilopascal (Kpa)is a pressure measurement unit. As the name implies there are 1,000 pascals in 1 kilopascal. You are most likey in north america or your using an american product mayber a car tire and you need to know what pressure to fill it to.

If your looking to convert psi to kPa go here

  • A normal tire pressure for cars can is 220 kPa/32 psi
  • Did you know A refrigerated can of soda has an internal pressure of about 30 pounds per square inch.or 207 kPa
  • Also that Pepsi-Cola® contains 276 kPa at approximately 16 °C.whereas a can of Coca-Cola Classic® at 34 °C has an internal pressureof approximately 380 kPa

kPa - Kilopascal Pressure Unit

As we talked about above kPa is often used for car tire pressure, the need to convert it to psi comes from the north american market. As stated a good range of pressure in car tires is withing 193-234 in kPa (kilopascal) or 28 to 34 psi (pounds per square inch). but this is not always the case in heavier cars, such as Large SUV's, the pressure for thier tires can be as high as 303 kPa (44 psi). Always remember The best range is found in your handbook , the manufactures suggested pressure. This can change brand and make. Having the wrong preasure in your tires could effect your insurance claim. And crashing because of it, could definitely automobile insurance rates significantly.

As we know air is just a gas, kPa is often used for measuring gas. Switching between psi and kPa to messure gas is often necessary depending on your equipment. One of the reasons for messuring gas pressure is to keep a constant supply. A gas supplier with a varying rate could cause problems.

Kilopascal (kPa) is commanly used in chemistry, chemical engineering, and physics.A popular Unit is 101.325kPa , this is 1 Atm or Atmospheric Pressure which is defined as the force per unit area exerted against a surface by the weight of the air above that surface.
