It is also known as pounds per cubic inch, pound/cubic inch. This unit is commonly used in the UK, US, FPS unit systems. Pound Mass Per Cubic Inch (lbm/in3) has a dimension of ML-3 where M is mass, and L is length. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit kg/m3 by multiplying its value by a factor of 27679.9047102.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).

Other units in the category of Density include Gram Per Cubic Centimeter (g/cm3), Gram Per Cubic Meter (g/m3), Gram Per Liter (g/l), Kilogram Per Cubic Decimeter (kg/dm3), Kilogram Per Cubic Meter (kg/m3), Kilogram Per Liter (kg/l), Ounce (av.)
