## How to Convert Atmospheres to Kilograms per Square Centimeter

To convert a measurement in atmospheres to a measurement in kilograms per square centimeter, multiply the pressure by the following conversion ratio: 1.033227 kilograms per square centimeter/atmosphere.

Since one atmosphere is equal to 1.033227 kilograms per square centimeter, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilograms per square centimeter = atmospheres × 1.033227

The pressure in kilograms per square centimeter is equal to the pressure in atmospheres multiplied by 1.033227.

For example, here's how to convert 5 atmospheres to kilograms per square centimeter using the formula above.
kilograms per square centimeter = (5 atm × 1.033227) = 5.166137 kgf/cm²

Atmospheres and kilograms per square centimeter are both units used to measure pressure. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## What Is an Atmosphere?

The atmosphere is a reference measure of pressure equal to 101,325 pascals or 1,013,250 dynes. The atmosphere was originally defined as the pressure of 760 millimeters of mercury at standard gravity at 0 °C, but was later redefined in 1954 to be equal to 1,013,250 dynes.

Atmospheres can be abbreviated as atm; for example, 1 atmosphere can be written as 1 atm.

## What Are Kilograms per Square Centimeter?

One kilogram per square centimeter is the pressure of equal to one kilogram-force per square centimeter.

The kilogram per square centimeter is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. A kilogram per square centimeter is sometimes also referred to as a kilogram per square centimetre or kilogram-force per centimeter square. Kilograms per square centimeter can be abbreviated as kgf/cm²; for example, 1 kilogram per square centimeter can be written as 1 kgf/cm².

In the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units. For example, kgf/cm² is expressing a change in weight relative to a change in area.

The unit is deprecated and not permitted for use with SI units, although it is still in use as some precision measuring devices still use the unit.

Kilograms per square centimeter can be expressed using the formula:
1 kgf/cm2 = 1 kgf / cm2

Pressure in kilograms per square centimeter are equal to the kilogram-force divided by the area in square centimeters.
