**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 0.58 kilopascals?*

As;

1 kilopascals = 0.0102 kilograms per centimeters cube

0.58 kilopascals = Y kilograms per centimeters cube

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

Y equals 0.58 times 0.0102 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 0.58 * 0.0102 / 1 = 0.005916 kilograms per centimeters cube

Answer is: 0.005916 kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 0.58 kilopascals.
