How to Convert Kilograms Per Square Meter to Pascals

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

To convert a kilogram per square meter measurement to a pascal measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One kilogram per square meter is equal to 9.80665 pascals, so use this simple formula to convert:

pascals = kilograms per square meter × 9.80665

The pressure in pascals is equal to the kilograms per square meter multiplied by 9.80665.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms per square meter to pascals using the formula above.
5 kgf/m² = (5 × 9.80665) = 49.03325 Pa

Kilograms per square meter and pascals 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.

Pascals

The pascal is defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter.

The pascal is the SI derived unit for pressure in the metric system. Pascals can be abbreviated as Pa; for example, 1 pascal can be written as 1 Pa.

Pascals can be expressed using the formula:
1 Pa = 1 Nm2

Pressure in pascals is equal to the force in newtons divided by the area in square meters.
