How to Convert Bars to Hectopascals

Calculators can be used to convert measurements from one unit to another

To convert a bar measurement to a hectopascal measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One bar is equal to 1,000 hectopascals, so use this simple formula to convert:

hectopascals = bars × 1,000

The pressure in hectopascals is equal to the bars multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 bars to hectopascals using the formula above.
5 bar = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 hPa

Bars and hectopascals are both units used to measure pressure. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Bars

The bar is equal to 100,000 pascals, which are defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter. One bar is just less than the average atmospheric pressure.

The bar is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. Bars can be abbreviated as bar, for example 1 bar can be written as 1 bar.

Hectopascals

The hectopascal is equal to 100 pascals, which are defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter. The hectopascal is the internationally adopted unit used to measure atmospheric pressure.

The hectopascal is a multiple of the pascal, which is the SI derived unit for pressure. In the metric system, "hecto" is the prefix for 102. Hectopascals can be abbreviated as hPa, for example 1 hectopascal can be written as 1 hPa.
