**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.

**Tonne Per Meter Cube** (abbreviations: **t/m2, or tpm2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength interms of tonne per meter cube.

## How to Convert Kilopascals to Tonnes Per Meters Cube

*Example: How many tonnes per meters cube are equivalent to 82.37 kilopascals?*

As;

1 kilopascals = 0.1 tonnes per meters cube

82.37 kilopascals = Y tonnes per meters cube

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

Y equals 82.37 times 0.1 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 82.37 * 0.1 / 1 = 8.237 tonnes per meters cube

Answer is: 8.237 tonnes per meters cube are equivalent to 82.37 kilopascals.
