## How to Convert Millibars to Atmospheres

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:

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.

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.
