How to Convert Millibars to Atmospheres

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

To convert a millibar measurement to an atmosphere measurement, multiply the pressure by the conversion ratio. One millibar is equal to 0.000987 atmospheres, so use this simple formula to convert:

atmospheres = millibars × 0.000987

The pressure in atmospheres is equal to the millibars multiplied by 0.000987.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 millibars to atmospheres using the formula above.
5,000 mbar = (5,000 × 0.000987) = 4.934616 atm

Millibars and atmospheres are both units used to measure pressure. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Millibars

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.

Atmospheres

The atmosphere is a reference measure of pressure equal to 101,325 pascals or 1,013,250 dynes. The atmosphere was originally defined as the pressure of 760 millimeters of mercury at standard gravity at 0 °C, but was later redefined in 1954 to be equal to 1,013,250 dynes.

Atmospheres can be abbreviated as atm, for example 1 atmosphere can be written as 1 atm.
