How to Convert Hectopascals to Millibars

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

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

millibars = hectopascals × 1

The pressure in millibars is equal to the hectopascals multiplied by 1.

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

Hectopascals and millibars 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.

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.
