**Definitions:**

**Millimeter Of Mercury** (abbreviations: **mm Hg, or mmHg**): is a manometric unit of pressure, equal to 133.322387415 pascals. It is the extra pressure generated by a column of mercury of one millimeter high.

**Bar** (abbreviation: **bar**): is a metric (still not approved by the International System of Units, SI) unit of pressure. It is exactly equal to 100,000 Pa and slightly lower than the current average atmospheric pressure on Earth, at sea level.

## How to Convert Millimeters Of Mercury to Bars

*Example: How many Bars are equivalent to 21.73 Millimeters of Mercury?*

As;

1 Millimeters of Mercury = 0.001333 Bars

21.73 Millimeters of Mercury = Y Bars

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

Y equals 21.73 times 0.001333 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 21.73 * 0.001333 / 1 = 0.02896609 Bars

Answer is: 0.02896609 Bars are equivalent to 21.73 Millimeters of Mercury.
