Newtons To Psi

Question asked by Gary:

Hypothetical question: A 6 inch pipe 8 ft long filled with water is revolving in a circlular motion with the pivot at it's center. The speed is 4 ft per second. I believe the equation for the amount of force at the ends of the pipe is F=m*v2/r. Do you need to use metric numbers for this formula to work? Is the answer in Newtons and if so how can I convert it to psi. I need to be able to calculate the psi at the ends of the pipe for varying data input. Appreciate any help you can give. Thanks, Gary
