How to Convert Hectopascals to Kilograms Per Square Centimeter

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

To convert a hectopascal measurement to a kilogram per square centimeter measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One hectopascal is equal to 0.00102 kilograms per square centimeter, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilograms per square centimeter = hectopascals × 0.00102

The pressure in kilograms per square centimeter is equal to the hectopascals multiplied by 0.00102.

For example, here's how to convert 5 hectopascals to kilograms per square centimeter using the formula above.
5 hPa = (5 × 0.00102) = 0.005099 kgf/cm²

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

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.

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.

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 kgfcm2

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