**Definitions:**

**Atmosphere** (abbreviation: **atm**): is a unit of standard pressure, equal to 101325 Pa, or 1.01325 bar.

**Kilopascal** (abbreviations: **kPa, or kN/m2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength. It is one kilonewton per square meter. It is named after the French polymath Blaise Pascal.

## How to Convert Atmospheres to Kilopascals

*Example: How many kilopascals are equivalent to 5.34 Atmospheres?*

As;

1 Atmospheres = 101.325 kilopascals

5.34 Atmospheres = Y kilopascals

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 5.34 times 101.325 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 5.34 * 101.325 / 1 = 541.0755 kilopascals

Answer is: 541.0755 kilopascals are equivalent to 5.34 Atmospheres.
