How to Convert Hectopascals to Pascals

conversion scale showing hectopascals and equivalent pascals pressure values

To convert a hectopascal measurement to a pascal measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One hectopascal is equal to 100 pascals, so use this simple formula to convert:

pascals = hectopascals × 100

The pressure in pascals is equal to the hectopascals multiplied by 100.

For example, here's how to convert 5 hectopascals to pascals using the formula above.
5 hPa = (5 × 100) = 500 Pa

Hectopascals and pascals 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.

Pascals

The pascal is defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter.

The pascal is the SI derived unit for pressure in the metric system. Pascals can be abbreviated as Pa, for example 1 pascal can be written as 1 Pa.

Pascals can be expressed using the formula:
1 Pa = 1 Nm2

Pressure in pascals is equal to the force in newtons divided by the area in square meters.
