How to Convert Kilograms Per Square Centimeter to Bars

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

Since one kilogram per square centimeter is equal to 0.980665 bars, you can use this simple formula to convert:

bars = kilograms per square centimeter × 0.980665

The pressure in bars is equal to the kilograms per square centimeter multiplied by 0.980665.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms per square centimeter to bars using the formula above.
5 kgf/cm² = (5 × 0.980665) = 4.903325 bar

Kilograms per square centimeter and bars 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 bar is equal to 100,000 pascals, which are defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter. One bar is just less than the average atmospheric pressure.

The bar is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. Bars can be abbreviated as bar; for example, 1 bar can be written as 1 bar.
