**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 72.85 kilopascals?*

As;

1 kilopascals = 1000 pascals

72.85 kilopascals = Y pascals

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

Y equals 72.85 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 72.85 * 1000 / 1 = 72850 pascals

Answer is: 72850 pascals are equivalent to 72.85 kilopascals.
