**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.

**Tonne Per Meter Cube** (abbreviations: **t/m2, or tpm2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength interms of tonne per meter cube.

## How to Convert Pascals to Tonnes Per Meters Cube

*Example: How many tonnes per meters cube are equivalent to 4.65 pascals?*

As;

1 pascals = 0.0001 tonnes per meters cube

4.65 pascals = Y tonnes per meters cube

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

Y equals 4.65 times 0.0001 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 4.65 * 0.0001 / 1 = 0.000465 tonnes per meters cube

Answer is: 0.000465 tonnes per meters cube are equivalent to 4.65 pascals.
