## How to Convert Kilograms per Square Meter to Millibars

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

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 pressure in 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.
millibars = (5 kgf/m² × 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.

## 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. 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/m2 = 1 kgf / m2

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

## What is a Millibar?

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 thousandths, or 10-3. Millibars can be abbreviated as mbar; for example, 1 millibar can be written as 1 mbar.
