**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.

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

## How to Convert Kilopascals to Pascals

*Example: How many pascals are equivalent to 37.96 kilopascals?*

As;

1 kilopascals = 1000 pascals

37.96 kilopascals = Y pascals

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

Y equals 37.96 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 37.96 * 1000 / 1 = 37960 pascals

Answer is: 37960 pascals are equivalent to 37.96 kilopascals.
