Enter the total pressure and the specific gravity of the fluid into the calculator to convert the pressure to head.

## Pressure to Head Formula

The following formula is used to convert a pressure to head.

h = p / .433*SG

- Where h is the head (ft)
- p is the pressure (psi)
- SG is the specific gravity of the fluid.

## Pressure to Head Definition

Converting a pressure into a head is done through the division of the pressure of the specific gravity of the fluid.

## Pressure to Head Example

How to convert pressure to head?

**First, determine the pressure.**Measure the total pressure in PSI.

**Next, determine the specific gravity.**Calculate or measure the specific gravity of the fluid.

**Finally, calculate the head.**Calculate the head in feet using the equation above.

## FAQ

**What is a head?**

A head is defined as the the total height of a liquid column that exerts a certain pressure on the base of the liquid container by the fluid.
