Water gradient when it is fresh water is 0.43 psi/ft. Water's density when free of dissolved solids is 1 g/cc. Knowing this just take your average overburden density and multiply it by the hydrostatic gradient. So you asked how to get 1 psi ft you can back into the answer by literally dividing 1 psi/ft by 0.43 psi/ft which gives you 2.33 g/cc as the ...
