As noted by several 1 bar = 14.5 psi and
Bar is atmosphereic pressure at sea level; however,
most bar readings are taken from absolute, 0 bar = complete vacume= -14.5
most PSI readings are from atmospheric,  0 psi = 1 bar
 so bar to psi conversion would be,  bar -1 x 14.5
 and psi to bar, psi/14.5 +1
