How to Convert Kilograms Per Square Meter to Kilograms Per Square Centimeter

conversion scale showing kilograms per square meter and equivalent kilograms per square centimeter pressure values

To convert a kilogram per square meter measurement to a kilogram per square centimeter measurement, divide the pressure by the conversion ratio. One kilogram per square centimeter is equal to 10,000 kilograms per square meter, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilograms per square centimeter = kilograms per square meter ÷ 10,000

The pressure in kilograms per square centimeter is equal to the kilograms per square meter divided by 10,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 kilograms per square meter to kilograms per square centimeter using the formula above.
5,000 kgf/m² = (5,000 ÷ 10,000) = 0.5 kgf/cm²

Kilograms per square meter and kilograms per square centimeter 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.

Kilograms Per Square Centimeter

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

The kilogram per square centimeter is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. A kilogram per square centimeter is sometimes also referred to as a kilogram per square centimetre or kilogram-force per centimeter square. Kilograms per square centimeter can be abbreviated as kgf/cm²; for example, 1 kilogram per square centimeter can be written as 1 kgf/cm².

The unit is deprecated and not permitted for use with SI units, although it is still in use as some precision measuring devices still use the unit.

Kilograms per square centimeter can be expressed using the formula:
1 kgf/cm2 = 1 kgfcm2

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