## How to Convert Kilograms per Square Centimeter to Bars

To convert a measurement in kilograms per square centimeter to a measurement in bars, multiply the pressure by the following conversion ratio: 0.980665 bars/kilogram per square centimeter.

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 pressure in 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.

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

## What Are 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 the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units.^{[1]} For example, kgf/cm² is expressing a change in weight relative to a change in area.

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/cm^{2} = 1 kgf / cm^{2}

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

## What Is a Bar?

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.
