Convert Kilograms Per Square Centimeter to Bars
Enter the pressure in kilograms per square centimeter below to get the value converted to bars.
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. One kilogram per square centimeter is equal to 0.980665 bars, so use this simple formula to convert:
The pressure in bars is equal to the kilograms per square centimeter multiplied by 0.980665.
Kilograms per square centimeter and bars are both units used to measure pressure. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
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.
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 kgfcm2
Pressure in kilograms per square centimeter are equal to the kilogram-force divided by the area in square centimeters.
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.

Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!
There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!
Understanding the Metric System
The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.
Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:
- “kilo” – 1,000x larger
- “hecto” – 100x larger
- “deca” – 10x larger
- “deci” – 10x smaller
- “centi” – 100x smaller
- “milli” – 1,000x smaller
There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
