tsf (usa, short) Derivation
The calculation below shows how the pressure unit Tons per Square Foot (USA, Short) (tsf) is derived from SI Units.

Formula

Pressure = Force / Area
Force = Mass x Acceleration
Acceleration = Distance / (Second x Second)

SI Units

Mass: Kilogram (kg)
Length: Metre (m)
Time: Second (s)
Force: Newton (N)
Pressure: Pascal (Pa)

Input Values

1 Ton (usa, short) = 2000 lbs
1 Pound = 0.45359237 kg
1 Foot = 12 ins
1 Inch = 0.0254 m
1 Square Foot = (12 x 0.0254 m) x (12 x 0.0254 m) = 0.09290304 m²
Acceleration = Standard Gravity = 9.80665 m/s²

Calculation

1 Ton Force (usa, short) = 2000 lbs x 0.45359237 kg x 9.80665 m/s² = 8896.443231 N
1 tsf (usa, short) Pressure = 9964.016418 N / 0.09290304 m² = 95760.51796 Pa
