How to Convert Kilograms Per Square Centimeter to Millibars

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

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

millibars = kilograms per square centimeter × 980.665

The pressure in millibars 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 millibars using the formula above.
5 kgf/cm² = (5 × 980.665) = 4,903.325 mbar

Kilograms per square centimeter and millibars 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.


One millibar is equal to one-thousandth of a bar, which is defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter. One millibar is also equal to one hectopascal.

The millibar is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. Millibars can be abbreviated as mbar; for example, 1 millibar can be written as 1 mbar.
