In standard English: "What does psig mean?"

The abbreviation stands for pounds per square inch gauge.

PSI is a standard unit of pressure, which may be converted to/from Pascals.

"Gauge" here means relative to surrounding atmospheric pressure.

So a reading of 100 psig means a pressure of 100 psi *above* the atmospheric pressure, which is around around 14.7 psi at sea level, making 114.7 psi absolute pressure.

What does PSIG indicate?

psig means pounds per square inch (gauge). The psi is the non-SI unit of pressure in imperial/US customary measurement systems. Gauge pressure is relative to the ambient atmospheric pressure. A reading of 1 psig means 1 psi above atmospheric pressure. This is the most common measurement you would obtain from a pressure gauge that measures in psi. The other is psia, which is an absolute pressure relative to a perfect vacuum, and is thus equal to psig + ambient pressure. That is, if a normal car tyre is inflated to 32 psi and atmospheric pressure is 14 psi. This is 32 psig, or 46 psia.

How could one transfer a PSIG to a PSI?

PSIG refers to pound/force per square inch gauge, while PSI measures the pressure relative to a vacuum. If you want to convert a figure from PSIG to PSI, you would need to add 14.7psi to your PSIG figure, which will give you your PSIA result.

How do i convert 70 psig to kilopascal?

Convert 70 psig to kPa (kilopascal) 1 psia = 6.89 kPa 70 psig + 15 = 85 psia 85 X 6.89 = 583.6 85 X 6.89= 585.65 is the correct math

What is the proper refrigerant psi on 1998 Chevy Tahoe?

The term would be psig not psi. Proper psig for any a/c unit auto or not is a 40 degree evaporator and you would convert 40 to psig runningng a pressure temperature chart with engine running at 1500 rpm. I its usin R-134A the psig that equals 40 degrees Fahrenheit is 34.9 psig =40 degrees Fahrenheit at 1500 rpm. In fact , 34.9 psig is the pressure for 40 degrees no matter how many rpm. Use 40 and be safe. Don't forget ,40 psig at idle will be much lower as rpm rises and evaporator could freeze up depending on humidity and ambient temp of truck inside.
