How to Convert Kilograms Per Square Meter to Atmospheres

Calculators can be used to convert measurements from one unit to another

To convert a kilogram per square meter measurement to a atmosphere measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One kilogram per square meter is equal to 9.6784E-5 atmospheres, so use this simple formula to convert:

atmospheres = kilograms per square meter × 9.6784E-5

The pressure in atmospheres is equal to the kilograms per square meter multiplied by 9.6784E-5.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms per square meter to atmospheres using the formula above.
5 kgf/m² = (5 × 9.6784E-5) = 0.000484 atm

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

Kilograms Per Square Meter

One kilogram per square meter is the pressure of equal to one kilogram-force per square meter.

The kilogram per square meter is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. A kilogram per square meter is sometimes also referred to as a kilogram per square metre or kilogram-force per meter square. Kilograms per square meter can be abbreviated as kgf/m², for example 1 kilogram per square meter can be written as 1 kgf/m².

The unit is deprecated and not permitted for use with SI units.

Kilograms per square meter can be expressed using the formula:
1 kgf/m2 = 1 kgfm2

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

Atmospheres

The atmosphere is a reference measure of pressure equal to 101,325 pascals or 1,013,250 dynes. The atmosphere was originally defined as the pressure of 760 millimeters of mercury at standard gravity at 0 °C, but was later redefined in 1954 to be equal to 1,013,250 dynes.

Atmospheres can be abbreviated as atm, for example 1 atmosphere can be written as 1 atm.
