**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.

## How to Convert Megapascals to Pascals

*Example: How many pascals are equivalent to 27.48 megapascals?*

As;

1 megapascals = 1000000 pascals

27.48 megapascals = Y pascals

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

Y equals 27.48 times 1000000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 27.48 * 1000000 / 1 = 27480000 pascals

Answer is: 27480000 pascals are equivalent to 27.48 megapascals.
