Enter the values of Pressure in PSI(lbs/in2) and area, A(sq.in) to calculate the Force, F(lbs).

 Enter Pressure: lbs/in2 Enter Area: sq.in Result – Force: lbs

## PSI to Force Formula:

The PSI to force formula converts pressure in pounds per square inch (PSI) to force, allowing for the calculation of the linear force exerted by a pressurized area. This conversion is vital in various engineering applications, such as hydraulic systems and pressure vessel design.

Force, F(lbs) in pounds, is calculated by multiplying the pressure in PSI(lbs/in2) in pounds per square inches by the area A(sq.in) in square inches.

Force, F(lbs) = PSI(lbs/in2) * A(sq.in)

F(lbs) = force in Newtons, N.

PSI(lbs/in2) = pressure in pounds per square inches, lbs/in2.

A(sq.in) = area in square inches, sq.in.

### PSI to Force Calculation:

1. A hydraulic press applies a pressure of 300 PSI over an area of 2 square inches. Calculate the force exerted by the press.

Given: PSI(lbs/in2) = 300lbs/in2,  A(sq.in) = 2sq.in

Force, F(lbs) = PSI(lbs/in2) * A(sq.in)

F(lbs) = 300 * 2

F(lbs) = 600lbs.

1. A force of 1000 lbs is applied and the pressure is 250 PSI. Find the area in square inches over which the pressure is applied.

Given: PSI(lbs/in2) = 250lbs/in2,  F(lbs) = 1000lbs.

Force, F(lbs) = PSI(lbs/in2) * A(sq.in)

A(sq.in) = F(lbs) / PSI(lbs/in2)

A(sq.in) = 1000 / 250

A(sq.in) = 4sq.in.
