How to Convert Pascals to Hectopascals

conversion scale showing pascals and equivalent hectopascals pressure values

To convert a pascal measurement to a hectopascal measurement, divide the pressure by the conversion ratio. One hectopascal is equal to 100 pascals, so use this simple formula to convert:

hectopascals = pascals ÷ 100

The pressure in hectopascals is equal to the pascals divided by 100.

For example, here's how to convert 500 pascals to hectopascals using the formula above.
500 Pa = (500 ÷ 100) = 5 hPa

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

Pascals

The pascal is defined as the pressure of one newton per square meter.

The pascal is the SI derived unit for pressure in the metric system. Pascals can be abbreviated as Pa, for example 1 pascal can be written as 1 Pa.

Pascals can be expressed using the formula:
1 Pa = 1 Nm2

Pressure in pascals is equal to the force in newtons divided by the area in square meters.

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.
