Psi to lift in Lbs.

  1. Jun 28, 2014 #1
    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
    I would appreciate any help I could get in understanding the conversion of psi to lifting capability.

    Such as how many pounds of weight could a 10,000 psi pump lift in pounds.

    I have searched the net but am coming up blank, I'm sure there is a formula for this but I can't seem to find it.

    If more explanation to my problem is necessary I would be happy to make it available.

    Thank you for your time and concern.

    What does psi stand for? Does that give you a clue?
