**Definitions:**

**Kilopound Per Square Foot** (abbreviations: **ksf, or kips/ft2**): is a British (Imperial) and American pressure unit which is directly related to the ksi pressure unit by a factor of 144 (1 sq ft = 12 in x 12 in = 144 sq in). Where, 1 kilopound per square foot equals 47.8803 kilopascals.

**Millimeter Of Mercury** (abbreviations: **mm Hg, or mmHg**): is a manometric unit of pressure, equal to 133.322387415 pascals. It is the extra pressure generated by a column of mercury of one millimeter high.

## How to Convert Kilopounds Per Square Feet to Millimeters Of Mercury

*Example: How many Millimeters of Mercury are equivalent to 93.88 kilopounds per square feet?*

As;

1 kilopounds per square feet = 359.12729195038 Millimeters of Mercury

93.88 kilopounds per square feet = Y Millimeters of Mercury

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 93.88 times 359.12729195038 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 93.88 * 359.12729195038 / 1 = 33714.870168301 Millimeters of Mercury

Answer is: 33714.870168301 Millimeters of Mercury are equivalent to 93.88 kilopounds per square feet.
