**Pound Mass Per Square Foot**

**Pound Mass Per Square Foot (lbm/ft**is a unit in the category of

^{2})*Surface density*. It is also known as pounds per square foot, pound mass/square foot. Pound Mass Per Square Foot (lbm/ft

^{2}) has a dimension of ML

^{-2}where M is mass, and L is length. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit kg/m

^{2}by multiplying its value by a factor of 4.88242763638.

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 Surface density include Gram Per Square Centimeter (g/cm^{2}), Kilogram Per Square Centimeter (kg/cm^{2}), Kilogram Per Square Meter (kg/m^{2}), Microgram Per Square Millimeter (µg/mm^{2}), Ounce Mass Per Square Inch (ozm/in^{2}), and Pound Mass Per Square Inch (lbm/in^{2}).
