Stuff I Wonder About 1

Why isn't "pounds per square inch" abbreviated "LSI?"

Hi Donna. Paul here.

Because pound is usually abbreviated as 'lb'. However, you're on track according to Wikipedia:

psi or lbf/in² or lbf/in²

I've just never seen the last two.

TIMELY question -- I've got to get my bike overhauled to get off public transportation and back on my own rear end to work.
