**Definitions:**

**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.

**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.

## How to Convert Kilopascals to Bars

*Example: How many Bars are equivalent to 68.43 kilopascals?*

As;

1 kilopascals = 0.01 Bars

68.43 kilopascals = Y Bars

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

Y equals 68.43 times 0.01 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 68.43 * 0.01 / 1 = 0.6843 Bars

Answer is: 0.6843 Bars are equivalent to 68.43 kilopascals.
