pressure Converter


The pressure is defined as the amount of force acting per unit area on a surface. The pressure is exerted perpendicular to the surface of the object. More the area on which force is acting, lesser the pressure felt by the object. This principle can be best understood by knowing how broad straps of school/college bags help in reducing the burden of books on our shoulders. Instruments like manometers, barometers, piezometers are used to measure pressure. The pressure is also used to compress gases in containers, to design objects like knives, syringes, nails, etc.. Use this pressure converter tool and get desired and accurate results.

Pascal [Pa], SI unit of pressure, defined as 1N/m2, to measure internal pressure, tensile strength of objects.

1 kilopascal [kPa] = 1000 pascal [Pa], this unit is used to express sub-atmospheric pressures, stress, and young modulus.

1 pound-force/square inch = 6894.7572931783 pascal [Pa], used to quantify hydraulic(liquids) or pneumatic(gaseous) pressures.

1 bar = 100000 pascal [Pa], mostly used to represent atmospheric pressures.
