We are being asked to express psi in megapascals (MPa). The given pressure is 2200 psi.
We’re going to convert psi to MPa:
psi → atm → Pa → MPa
A gauge on a compressed gas cylinder reads 2200 psi (pounds per square inch; 1 atm = 14.7 psi). Express this pressure in each of the following units.
b. megapascals (MPa)
