**Pound Force Per Square Foot (lbf/ft ^{2})** is a unit in the category of

*Pressure*. It is also known as pound force/square foot, pound per square foot. This unit is commonly used in the UK, US, FPS unit systems. Pound Force Per Square Foot (lbf/ft

^{2}) has a dimension of ML

^{-1}T

^{-2}where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit Pa by multiplying its value by a factor of 47.88025898.

Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).
