psi (Pound force per square inch) to Kilopascals (KPa) Conversion
So you want to know how many kilopascals in a psi ?
Kilopascal (Kpa)is a pressure measurement unit. As the name implies there are 1,000 pascals in 1 kilopascal. An interesting fact is that It is not one of the most used pressure unit but meteorologists in Canada do indeed use kilopascals (kPa)
If your looking to convert kPa to psi go here
As we talked about above kPa is often used for car tire pressure, So in the US you need to convert that to psi as this is the common north american value for pressure. 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.
Did you know that ahigh heel can exert more than 15 times the pressure of an elephant's foot!!! somewhere in the range of 3,000kPa depending on the size of the person and the surface area of the heel!
another us for kpa is bloodpressure For adults normal blood pressure is less than 19 kPa systolic, and 12 kPa diastolic. IF you find out your Blood pressure is above one of these values it is unhealthy and you should visit a Doctor.
