**Definitions:**

**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.

**Kilogram Per Centimeter Cube** (abbreviations: **kg/cm2, or kgpcm2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength interms of kilogram per centimeter cube.

## How to Convert Megapascals to Kilograms Per Centimeters Cube

*Example: How many kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 14.2 megapascals?*

As;

1 megapascals = 10.197 kilograms per centimeters cube

14.2 megapascals = Y kilograms per centimeters cube

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

Y equals 14.2 times 10.197 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 14.2 * 10.197 / 1 = 144.7974 kilograms per centimeters cube

Answer is: 144.7974 kilograms per centimeters cube are equivalent to 14.2 megapascals.
