# What's the difference between kPa and PSI?

Kilopascal Uses
whereas, PSI stands for Pounds per square inches. It is a unit of pressure or of stress based on avoirdupois units. It is the pressure resulting from a force of one pound-force applied to an area of one square inch.

Thereof, are PSI and kPa the same?

Psi (pounds per square inch) is 1 pound of force per square inch. Kilopascal is a metric pressure unit and is equal to 1000 force of newton per square meter.

Similarly, how many kPa are in a pound? 1 kilopascal (kPa) = 0.15 pounds per sq.

Similarly, it is asked, what does kPa mean in pressure?

Kilopascal or kPa Definition The kilopascal is a unit of pressure. 1 kPa is approximately the pressure exerted by a 10-g mass resting on a 1-cm2 area. 101.3 kPa = 1 atm. There are 1,000 pascals in 1 kilopascal.

What TYRE pressure is 220 kPa?
