The question I'm asking is pretty much:

How do you convert PSI to Velocity?

Everywhere I look it says You can't, but can you?

And what would you need to know to do so if there is no direct way to convert?

My homework is to convert 0.14 PSI into m/s.

EDIT Sorry guys my teacher does like being tricky, no clue why. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Put down the chocolate-covered banana and step away from the European currency systems.

The answer to your question is simply you don't. Just as converting seconds to kilograms, or pounds to yards/hour isn't feasible what you asked is also not possible.

Pressure and velocity measure different things, so it's illogical to convert one into another.

V=m/s P=F/A P=(mass*v/s)/s So how could you interchange them they are not same quantaties ya you would link them by just opening force formula .
