## How to Convert Kilograms Per Square Centimeter to Hectopascals

To convert a kilogram per square centimeter measurement to a hectopascal measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One kilogram per square centimeter is equal to 980.665 hectopascals, so use this simple formula to convert:

The pressure in hectopascals is equal to the 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.

## 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/cm^{2} = 1 kgfcm^{2}

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

## Hectopascals

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.
