This example problem demonstrates how to convert the pressure unit pounds per square inch (psi) to pascals (Pa).

## PSI To Pa Problem

The average air pressure at sea level is 14.6 psi. What is this pressure in Pa?**Solution:**

1 psi = 6894.7 Pa

Set up the conversion so the desired unit will be canceled out. In this case, we want Pa to be the remaining unit.

pressure in Pa = (pressure in psi) x (6894.7 Pa/1 psi)

pressure in Pa = (14.6 x 6894.7) Pa

pressure in Pa = 100662.7 Pa**Answer:**

The average sea level air pressure is 100662.7 Pa or 1.0 x 10^{5} Pa.
