How to Convert Kilograms Per Square Meter to Bars

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

To convert a kilogram per square meter measurement to a bar measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One kilogram per square meter is equal to 9.8067E-5 bars, so use this simple formula to convert:

bars = kilograms per square meter × 9.8067E-5

The pressure in bars is equal to the kilograms per square meter multiplied by 9.8067E-5.

For example, here's how to convert 50,000 kilograms per square meter to bars using the formula above.
50,000 kgf/m² = (50,000 × 9.8067E-5) = 4.903325 bar

Kilograms per square meter and bars 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.

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.

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.

Bars

The bar is equal to 100,000 pascals, which are defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter. One bar is just less than the average atmospheric pressure.

The bar is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. Bars can be abbreviated as bar; for example, 1 bar can be written as 1 bar.
