CONVERSION FACTORS
Mass
1 pound = 0. 454 kg
1 tonne = 1000 kg
1 UK ton = 2240 lb = 1. 016 tonne
Density
1 pound / in³ = 27. 7 x 10³ kg /m³
1 pound / UK gall = 99. 8 kg/m³
Pressure
1 pound force / in³ = 6895 N/m²
1 bar = 14. 5 lbf/in² = 1x10Ž N/m²
1 atmosphere = 14. 7 lbf/in = 1. 013 x 10ŽN/m²
Depth of water vs pressure:
Pressure increases by 1 atmosphere for every 10 metres
water depth.
