In next fields, kindly type your value in the text box under title [ From: ] to convert from megapascal to kilopascal (mpa to kpa). As you type your value, the answer will be automatically calculated and displayed in the text box under title [ To: ].

**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.

**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.

## How to Convert Megapascals to Kilopascals

*Example: How many kilopascals are equivalent to 29.79 megapascals?*

As;

1 megapascals = 1000 kilopascals

29.79 megapascals = Y kilopascals

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

Y equals 29.79 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 29.79 * 1000 / 1 = 29790 kilopascals

Answer is: 29790 kilopascals are equivalent to 29.79 megapascals.
