  • 50 kN = psi ?

    50 kN = psi ? help please... thanks

    Can i also have the formula..thank you in advance..

    Re: 50 kN = psi ?

    kilonewton is a unit of force, and PSI is a unit of pressure.

    There is no direct conversion between them. You will need to provide more information as to exactly what you are trying to do, maybe I can help work it out.

      I have a tool that says it has 50KN. Is there any way of finding out much PSI that even comes close to? Just so I can tell what I'm working with.

        One is force, the other pressure. They are not comparable. However, newtons can be converted to pounds force.
        50 kN x 1lbf/4.44822 N = 11240 lbf.

          if you are using a pressbrake or simular >>>
          then you can use this >>

          50 kN/m2 = 7.25 psi

          .

            I have a similar problem. We want to use a hydraulic bolt tensioning machine but the units given on the drawing is in KN - the gauge is in Bar/Psi. How do I convert?

              You would need to know the area of the piston on which the pressure acts

              force = area * pressure
