How do you convert psig to psi?
In a vacuum, there are no gas molecules. No molecules, no pressure. A vacuum pump can remove a large number of gas particles from a bell jar.
Absolute pressure is measured relative to perfect vacuum (0 psia) with zero as its zero point. Gauge pressure is relative to ambient air pressure (14.5 psia), using atmospheric pressure as its zero point (0 psig = 14.5 psia). Many gauges are available to measure vacuum within a vacuum furnace chamber.

What is the lowest pressure possible?
Vacuum pressure is measured relative to ambient atmospheric pressure. It is referred to as pounds per square inch (vacuum) or PSIV. The electrical output of a vacuum pressure transducer is 0 VDC at 0 PSIV (14.7 PSIA) and full scale output (typically 5 VDC) at full scale vacuum, 14.7 (0 PSIA).
The psi, or pounds per square inch, is a unit of pressure (P) using the foot-pound-second (FPS) system. To calculate psi, divide the force applied (F) with the area (A). Use an instrument such as a force gauge, spring scale or strain gauge. Make sure that the unit is in pounds.
Is psig equal to psi?
To convert psi to psig, you add atmospheric pressure to the psig value. Atmospheric pressure is 101,325 pascals, or 101,325 newtons per square meter. Divide 101,325 by 1,550, which is the number of square inches in a square meter: 101,325 ÷ 1,550 = 65.37. This is atmospheric pressure in newtons per square inch.
