Pressure Conversions

Pressure is defined as force per unit area applied to an object in a direction perpendicular to the surface.

The table below presents conversion factors between common units of force.











Standard units = Pascal (P)

  atmosphere inch of water lb per sq in lb per sq ft cm of Hg dyn/cm2 pascal
1 atm = 1 406.8 14.70 2116 75.99 1.013 * 106 1.013 * 105
1 in water = 2.458 * 10-3 1 3.613 * 10-2 5.202 0.1868 2491 249.1
1 lb/in2 = 6.805 * 10-2 27.68 1 144 5.171 6.895 * 104 6.895 * 103
1 lb/ft2 = 4.725 * 10-4 0.1922 6.944 * 10-3 1 3.591x10-2 478.8 47.88
1 cm Hg = 1.316 * 10-2 5.353 0.1934 27.85 1 1.333 * 104 1333
1 dyn/cm2 = 9.869 * 10-7 4.015 * 10-4 1.450 * 10-5 2.089 * 10-3 7.501 * 10-5 1 0.1
1 Pa = 9.869 * 10-6 4.015 * 10-3 1.450 * 10-4 2.089 * 10-2 7.501 * 10-4 10 1

in of water @ 4º C 1 bar = 106 dyn/cm2
cm of Hg @ 0º C 1 atm = 29.92 in of Hg

Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
