Glossary » Units » Pressure » Poundal Per Square Inch
Poundal Per Square Inch (pdl/in2) is a unit in the category of Pressure. It is also known as poundals per square inch, poundal/square inch. This unit is commonly used in the UK, US unit systems. Poundal Per Square Inch (pdl/in2) has a dimension of ML-1T-2 where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit Pa by multiplying its value by a factor of 214.295607936.
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).
