The pressure units in the converter:

The most frequently used pressure units:

The most frequently used pressure units are pascal (Pa), kilopascal (kPa),
megapascal (MPa), psi (pound per square inch), torr (mmHg), atm (atmospheric
pressure) and bar.

Atm (Atmospheric Pressure) Conversion:

An atmosphere (atm) equals to the air pressure at the sea level at a temperature
of 15 Celsius.

 1 atm = 1.01325 bar → atm to bar


 1 atm = 101.325 kPa → atm to kPa
 1 atm = 101325 pascals → atm to pascal
 1 atm = 0.101325 MPa → atm to MPa
 1 atm = 14.6959 psi → atm to psi
 1 atm = 760 torr (mmHg) → atm to torr

Bar Conversion:

Bar is a metric pressure unit and equals to 100 kilopascals which is almost equal
to the atmospheric pressure.

 1 bar = 0.986923 atm → bar to atm


 1 bar = 100 kPa → bar to kPa
 1 bar = 100000 pascals → bar to pascal
 1 bar = 0.1 MPa → bar to MPa
 1 bar = 14.5038 psi → bar to psi
 1 bar = 750.062 torr (mmHg) → bar to torr

Pascal Conversion:

Pascal is a derived metric pressure unit and equals to 1 newton per square meter.

 1 pascal = 0.000009869 atm → pascal to atm


 1 pascal = 0.00001 bar → pascal to bar
 1 pascal = 0.01 kPa → pascal to kPa
 1 pascal = 0.000001 MPa → pascal to MPa
 1 pascal = 0.000145 psi → pascal to psi
 1 pascal = 0.0075 torr (mmHg) → pascal to torr

Kilopascal (kPa) Conversion:


Kilopascal (kPa) is a frequently used pressure unit and equals to 1000 newton
per square meter (metre).

 1 kPa = 0.00986923 atm → kPa to atm


 1 kPa = 0.01 bar → kPa to bar
 1 kPa = 0.001 MPa → kPa to MPa
 1 kPa = 1000 pascals → kPa to pascal
 1 kPa = 0.145038 psi → kPa to psi
 1 kPa = 7.50062 torr (mmHg) → kPa to torr

Psi (Pound Force Per Square Inch) Conversion:

Psi is a pressure unit and equals to the force of one pound applied to one square
inch.

 1 psi = 0.068046 atm → psi to atm


 1 psi = 0.0689476 bar → psi to bar
 1 psi = 6.89476 kPa → psi to kPa
 1 psi = 0.00689476 MPa → psi to MPa
 1 psi = 6894.76 pascals → psi to pascal
 1 psi = 51.715 torr (mmHg) → psi to torr
