It is also known as pound square inch. This unit is commonly used in the UK, US unit systems. Pound Mass-Square Inch (lbm-in2) has a dimension of ML2 where M is mass, and L is length. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit kg-m2 by multiplying its value by a factor of 0.000292639653429.
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 Mass moment of inertia include Gram-Square Centimeter (g-cm2), Kilogram-Square Meter (kg-m2), Pound Mass-Square Foot (lbm-ft2), Slug-Square Foot (slug-ft2), and Slug-Square Inch (slug-in2).
