# Millibars to Hectopascals Conversion

Enter the pressure in millibars below to get the value converted to hectopascals.

Results in Hectopascals: 1 mbar = 1 hPa

## How to Convert Millibars to Hectopascals To convert a millibar measurement to a hectopascal measurement, divide the pressure by the conversion ratio. One hectopascal is equal to 1 millibar, so use this simple formula to convert:

hectopascals = millibars ÷ 1

The pressure in hectopascals is equal to the millibars divided by 1.

For example, here's how to convert 5 millibars to hectopascals using the formula above.
5 mbar = (5 ÷ 1) = 5 hPa

## 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.

## Hectopascals

The hectopascal is equal to 100 pascals, which are defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter. The hectopascal is the internationally adopted unit used to measure atmospheric pressure.

The hectopascal is a multiple of the pascal, which is the SI derived unit for pressure. In the metric system, "hecto" is the prefix for 102. Hectopascals can be abbreviated as hPa, for example 1 hectopascal can be written as 1 hPa.
