How to Convert Kilograms Per Square Centimeter to Atmospheres

To convert a kilogram per square centimeter measurement to an atmosphere measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio.

Since one kilogram per square centimeter is equal to 0.967841 atmospheres, you can use this simple formula to convert:

atmospheres = kilograms per square centimeter × 0.967841

The pressure in atmospheres is equal to the kilograms per square centimeter multiplied by 0.967841.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms per square centimeter to atmospheres using the formula above.
5 kgf/cm² = (5 × 0.967841) = 4.839206 atm

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

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.

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.[1]

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.


The atmosphere is a reference measure of pressure equal to 101,325 pascals or 1,013,250 dynes. The atmosphere was originally defined as the pressure of 760 millimeters of mercury at standard gravity at 0 °C, but was later redefined in 1954 to be equal to 1,013,250 dynes.

Atmospheres can be abbreviated as atm; for example, 1 atmosphere can be written as 1 atm.
