**Definitions:**

**Kilogram Per Centimeter Cube** (abbreviations: **kg/cm2, or kgpcm2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength interms of kilogram per centimeter cube.

**Megapascal** (abbreviations: **Mpa, or MN/m2, or N/mm2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength. It is one meganewton per square meter or one newton per square millimeter. It is named after the French polymath Blaise Pascal.

## How to Convert Kilograms Per Centimeters Cube to Megapascals

*Example: How many megapascals are equivalent to 11.49 kilograms per centimeters cube?*

As;

1 kilograms per centimeters cube = 0.09807 megapascals

11.49 kilograms per centimeters cube = Y megapascals

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

Y equals 11.49 times 0.09807 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 11.49 * 0.09807 / 1 = 1.1268243 megapascals

Answer is: 1.1268243 megapascals are equivalent to 11.49 kilograms per centimeters cube.
