You can do the reverse unit conversion from
gigapascal to psia, or enter any two units below:

Pounds per square inch absolute (psia) is used to make it clear that the pressure is relative to a vacuum rather than the ambient atmospheric pressure. Since atmospheric pressure at sea level is around 14.7 psi, this will be added to any pressure reading made in air at sea level.

››Definition: Gigapascal

The SI prefix "giga" represents a factor of
10^{9}, or in exponential notation, 1E9.

So 1 gigapascal = 10^{9} pascals.

The definition of a pascal is as follows:

The pascal (symbol Pa) is the SI unit of pressure.It is equivalent to one newton per square metre. The unit is named after Blaise Pascal, the eminent French mathematician, physicist and philosopher.
