## What is a Hectopascal?

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 10^{2}. Hectopascals can be abbreviated as *hPa*; for example, 1 hectopascal can be written as 1 hPa.
