If you can give us more detail on what you are trying to do, we may be able to help, but it would be more of an analysis than a conversion.
how much is the equivalent in ftlbs or newtonmeter.

Re: PSI coverted to Ft/Lbs
on water pressure, I need to try to figure out how to know how much tongue i am getting as a ft lbs measurement if possible instead of the psi reading. I am running at 15,000 psi in a sealed system running 1/2" id pipe and my pump is running at 2000 rpm. is there a way to figure this, i'm at a loss trying to figure it. thanks, Daniel

(pounds per square inch  foot pounds)
1 foot = 12 inches
1 foot squared = 144 inches squared
15'000 psi * 0.5 inches = 30'000 psi
30'000 psi /144 inches to create foot squared = 208.333333 ft lbs
