How to Convert Hectopascals to Kilograms per Square Centimeter
To convert a measurement in hectopascals to a measurement in kilograms per square centimeter, multiply the pressure by the following conversion ratio: 0.00102 kilograms per square centimeter/hectopascal.
Since one hectopascal is equal to 0.00102 kilograms per square centimeter, you can use this simple formula to convert:
kilograms per square centimeter = hectopascals × 0.00102
The pressure in kilograms per square centimeter is equal to the pressure in hectopascals multiplied by 0.00102.
Hectopascals 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 Hectopascal?
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.

What Are Kilograms 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. 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.
