## How to Convert Kilograms per Square Meter to Hectopascals

To convert a measurement in kilograms per square meter to a measurement in hectopascals, multiply the pressure by the following conversion ratio: 0.098067 hectopascals/kilogram per square meter.

Since one kilogram per square meter is equal to 0.098067 hectopascals, you can use this simple formula to convert:

hectopascals = kilograms per square meter × 0.098067

The pressure in hectopascals is equal to the pressure in kilograms per square meter multiplied by 0.098067.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kilograms per square meter to hectopascals using the formula above.

Kilograms per square meter and hectopascals 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 a Hectopascal?

The hectopascal is equal to 100 pascals, which are defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter. The hectopascal is the internationally adopted unit used to measure atmospheric pressure.

The hectopascal is a multiple of the pascal, which is the SI derived unit for pressure. In the metric system, "hecto" is the prefix for 10^{2}. Hectopascals can be abbreviated as *hPa*; for example, 1 hectopascal can be written as 1 hPa.
