How to Convert Kilograms Per Square Meter to Torr

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

To convert a kilogram per square meter measurement to a torr measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One kilogram per square meter is equal to 0.073556 torr, so use this simple formula to convert:

torr = kilograms per square meter × 0.073556

The pressure in torr is equal to the kilograms per square meter multiplied by 0.073556.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms per square meter to torr using the formula above.
5 kgf/m² = (5 × 0.073556) = 0.36778 Torr

Kilograms per square meter and torr 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.

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.


The torr is a measure of pressure equal to 1/760 of an atmosphere. Torr is based on an absolute scale of pressure, which is equivalent to the atmospheric pressure plus the gauge pressure.

The torr is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. Torr can be abbreviated as Torr, for example 1 torr can be written as 1 Torr.

Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!

There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!

Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
