## How to Convert Kilograms per Square Meter to Pascals

To convert a measurement in kilograms per square meter to a measurement in pascals, multiply the pressure by the following conversion ratio: 9.80665 pascals/kilogram per square meter.

Since one kilogram per square meter is equal to 9.80665 pascals, you can use this simple formula to convert:

pascals = kilograms per square meter × 9.80665

The pressure in pascals is equal to the pressure in 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.
pascals = (5 kgf/m² × 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.

## 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 Pascal?

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 N / m2

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