## How to Convert Kilograms per Square Centimeter to Hectopascals

To convert a measurement in kilograms per square centimeter to a measurement in hectopascals, multiply the pressure by the following conversion ratio: 980.665 hectopascals/kilogram per square centimeter.

Since one kilogram per square centimeter is equal to 980.665 hectopascals, you can use this simple formula to convert:

hectopascals = kilograms per square centimeter × 980.665

The pressure in hectopascals is equal to the pressure in kilograms per square centimeter multiplied by 980.665.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kilograms per square centimeter to hectopascals using the formula above.

Kilograms per square centimeter and hectopascals 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 Hectopascal?

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 10^{2}. Hectopascals can be abbreviated as *hPa*; for example, 1 hectopascal can be written as 1 hPa.
