**Definitions:**

**Pascal** (abbreviations: **Pa, or N/m2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength. It is one newton per square meter. 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 Pascals to Kilopascals

*Example: How many kilopascals are equivalent to 99.5 pascals?*

As;

1 pascals = 0.001 kilopascals

99.5 pascals = Y kilopascals

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

Y equals 99.5 times 0.001 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 99.5 * 0.001 / 1 = 0.0995 kilopascals

Answer is: 0.0995 kilopascals are equivalent to 99.5 pascals.
