How to Convert Bars to Millibars

conversion scale showing bars and equivalent millibars pressure values

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

millibars = bars × 1,000

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

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

Bars and millibars 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.

Millibars

One millibar is equal to one-thousandth of a bar, which is defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter. One millibar is also equal to one hectopascal.

The millibar is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. Millibars can be abbreviated as mbar, for example 1 millibar can be written as 1 mbar.
