How to Convert Kilograms Per Square Meter to Millibars

To convert a kilogram per square meter measurement to a millibar measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio.

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

millibars = kilograms per square meter × 0.098067

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms per square meter to millibars using the formula above.
5 kgf/m² = (5 × 0.098067) = 0.490333 mbar

Kilograms per square meter and millibars 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 kgf / m2

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


One millibar is equal to one-thousandth of a bar, which is defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter. One millibar is also equal to one hectopascal.

The millibar is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. Millibars can be abbreviated as mbar; for example, 1 millibar can be written as 1 mbar.
