## How to Convert Bars to Kilograms per Square Centimeter

To convert a measurement in bars to a measurement in kilograms per square centimeter, multiply the pressure by the following conversion ratio: 1.019716 kilograms per square centimeter/bar.

Since one bar is equal to 1.019716 kilograms per square centimeter, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilograms per square centimeter = bars × 1.019716

The pressure in kilograms per square centimeter is equal to the pressure in bars multiplied by 1.019716.

For example, here's how to convert 5 bars to kilograms per square centimeter using the formula above.
kilograms per square centimeter = (5 bar × 1.019716) = 5.098581 kgf/cm²

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

## What Is a Bar?

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.

## 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.[1] 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.
