kilogram (force) per square centimeter


kilogram (force) per square centimeter
(kgf/cm2 or kg/cm2 or kgsc)
   a common metric unit of pressure equal to 98.0665 kilopascals (see below) or about 14.2234 pounds per square inch (lbf/in2 or psi). Similarly, one kilogram force per square meter is equal to 9.806 65 pascals.
