**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.

**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.

## How to Convert Kilopascals to Kilograms Per Centimeters Cube

*Example: How many kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 27.61 kilopascals?*

As;

1 kilopascals = 0.0102 kilograms per centimeters cube

27.61 kilopascals = Y kilograms per centimeters cube

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

Y equals 27.61 times 0.0102 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 27.61 * 0.0102 / 1 = 0.281622 kilograms per centimeters cube

Answer is: 0.281622 kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 27.61 kilopascals.
