## How to Convert Millibars to Kilograms per Square Centimeter

To convert a measurement in millibars to a measurement in kilograms per square centimeter, multiply the pressure by the following conversion ratio: 0.00102 kilograms per square centimeter/millibar.

Since one millibar is equal to 0.00102 kilograms per square centimeter, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilograms per square centimeter = millibars × 0.00102

The pressure in kilograms per square centimeter is equal to the pressure in millibars multiplied by 0.00102.

For example, here's how to convert 500 millibars to kilograms per square centimeter using the formula above.
kilograms per square centimeter = (500 mbar × 0.00102) = 0.509858 kgf/cm²

Millibars and kilograms per square centimeter are both units used to measure pressure. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## What is a Millibar?

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 thousandths, or 10-3. Millibars can be abbreviated as mbar; for example, 1 millibar can be written as 1 mbar.

## What Are Kilograms per Square Centimeter?

One kilogram per square centimeter is the pressure of equal to one kilogram-force per square centimeter.

The kilogram per square centimeter is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. A kilogram per square centimeter is sometimes also referred to as a kilogram per square centimetre or kilogram-force per centimeter square. Kilograms per square centimeter can be abbreviated as kgf/cm²; for example, 1 kilogram per square centimeter can be written as 1 kgf/cm².

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/cm² is expressing a change in weight relative to a change in area.

The unit is deprecated and not permitted for use with SI units, although it is still in use as some precision measuring devices still use the unit.

Kilograms per square centimeter can be expressed using the formula:
1 kgf/cm2 = 1 kgf / cm2

Pressure in kilograms per square centimeter are equal to the kilogram-force divided by the area in square centimeters.
