## How to Convert Hectopascals to Kilograms Per Square Meter

To convert a hectopascal measurement to a kilogram per square meter measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One hectopascal is equal to 10.197162 kilograms per square meter, so use this simple formula to convert:

The pressure in kilograms per square meter is equal to the hectopascals multiplied by 10.197162.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 hectopascals to kilograms per square meter using the formula above.

Hectopascals and kilograms per square meter 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 10^{2}. Hectopascals can be abbreviated as *hPa*, for example 1 hectopascal can be written as 1 hPa.

## 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.

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

Kilograms per square meter can be expressed using the formula:

1 kgf/m^{2} = 1 kgfm^{2}

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