## How to Convert Kilograms per Square Meter to Atmospheres

To convert a measurement in kilograms per square meter to a measurement in atmospheres, multiply the pressure by the following conversion ratio: 9.6784E-5 atmospheres/kilogram per square meter.

Since one kilogram per square meter is equal to 9.6784E-5 atmospheres, you can use this simple formula to convert:

atmospheres = kilograms per square meter × 9.6784E-5

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

For example, here's how to convert 50,000 kilograms per square meter to atmospheres using the formula above.
atmospheres = (50,000 kgf/m² × 9.6784E-5) = 4.839206 atm

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

## What Are 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.

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. For example, kgf/m² is expressing a change in weight relative to a change in area.

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 kgf / m2

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

## What Is an Atmosphere?

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.
