One pound is 0.454 kg, and one cubic meter is 10.76 FtÂ². Using this info:
 Code: Select all
lb  0.454 kg  10.76 ftÂ²

ftÂ² lb  mÂ²
We can now cancel out ftÂ² over ftÂ² and lb over lb, giving us:0.454 kg Â· 10.76
 = 4.89 kg/mÂ²
mÂ²
so, 1 lb/ftÂ² = 4.89 kg/mÂ²

Yeah, this Kg/m^2, but how do you get Kg/m^3?
so, 1 lb/ftÂ² = 4.89 kg/mÂ²
