(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Ok, so I was at lowes and I was trying to figure out the gauge pressure of a certain air compressor that used psi measurements. I don't have an iPhone or anything that can pull up internet converters so I figured I would have to do the conversion dimensionally. This posed a problem though as the pounds to kilograms converter on my phone doesn't recognize pounds as a force, but as a mass. I was wondering if there was some sort of calculus involved with dimensionally converting psi to kPa.

1 lb = [tex].4536 kg_{in earths gravity}[/tex]

with respect to time, pressure is the second derivative of kg/meter
