## 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.

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.^{[1]} 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/m^{2} = 1 kgf / m^{2}

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.
