Do you want to convert kilograms per square centimeter to torr?

## How to Convert Torr to Kilograms per Square Centimeter

To convert a measurement in torr to a measurement in kilograms per square centimeter, multiply the pressure by the following conversion ratio: 0.00136 kilograms per square centimeter/torr.

Since one torr is equal to 0.00136 kilograms per square centimeter, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilograms per square centimeter = torr × 0.00136

The pressure in kilograms per square centimeter is equal to the pressure in torr multiplied by 0.00136.

For example, here's how to convert 500 torr to kilograms per square centimeter using the formula above.
kilograms per square centimeter = (500 Torr × 0.00136) = 0.679755 kgf/cm²

Torr 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 Torr?

The torr is a measure of pressure equal to 1/760 of an atmosphere. Torr is based on an absolute scale of pressure, which is equivalent to the atmospheric pressure plus the gauge pressure.

The torr is a non-SI metric unit for pressure. Torr can be abbreviated as Torr; for example, 1 torr can be written as 1 Torr.

## 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.
