Tons or Tons Force per Square Foot (USA, Short) is an American pressure unit comparable in magnitude to atmospheric pressure. 1 ton per square foot (usa, short) equals 95760.5 pascals.

The ton force per square foot unit is rarely used for gas or liquid pressure measurement, but instead is mostly used in the building and construction industry for rating the load on materials such as ensuring adequate footings and foundations.

## 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 / (Time x Time)

#### 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
