# Convert Kilopascal to Megapascal (kpa to mpa)

In next fields, kindly type your value in the text box under title [ From: ] to convert from kilopascal to megapascal (kpa to mpa). As you type your value, the answer will be automatically calculated and displayed in the text box under title [ To: ].

**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.

**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 Kilopascals to Megapascals

*Example: How many megapascals are equivalent to 74.82 kilopascals?*

As;

1 kilopascals = 0.001 megapascals

74.82 kilopascals = Y megapascals

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

Y equals 74.82 times 0.001 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 74.82 * 0.001 / 1 = 0.07482 megapascals

Answer is: 0.07482 megapascals are equivalent to 74.82 kilopascals.
