Enter the pressure in bars below to get the value converted to kilograms per square meter.

Results in Kilograms Per Square Meter: 1 bar = 10,197.16213 kgf/m²

## How to Convert Bars to Kilograms Per Square Meter To convert a bar measurement to a kilogram per square meter measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One bar is equal to 10,197.16213 kilograms per square meter, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilograms per square meter = bars × 10,197.16213

The pressure in kilograms per square meter is equal to the bars multiplied by 10,197.16213.

For example, here's how to convert 5 bars to kilograms per square meter using the formula above.
5 bar = (5 × 10,197.16213) = 50,985.810649 kgf/m²

Bars and kilograms per square meter 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.

## Kilograms Per Square Meter

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

The kilogram per square meter is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. A kilogram per square meter is sometimes also referred to as a kilogram per square metre or kilogram-force per meter square. Kilograms per square meter can be abbreviated as kgf/m²; for example, 1 kilogram per square meter can be written as 1 kgf/m².

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.

The unit is deprecated and not permitted for use with SI units.

Kilograms per square meter can be expressed using the formula:
1 kgf/m2 = 1 kgfm2

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