**Definitions:**

**Bar** (abbreviation: **bar**): is a metric (still not approved by the International System of Units, SI) unit of pressure. It is exactly equal to 100,000 Pa and slightly lower than the current average atmospheric pressure on Earth, at sea level.

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

## How to Convert Bars to Pascals

*Example: How many pascals are equivalent to 10.79 Bars?*

As;

1 Bars = 100000 pascals

10.79 Bars = Y pascals

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

Y equals 10.79 times 100000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 10.79 * 100000 / 1 = 1079000 pascals

Answer is: 1079000 pascals are equivalent to 10.79 Bars.
