**Definitions:**

**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.

**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 Tonnes Per Meters Cube to Kilopascals

*Example: How many kilopascals are equivalent to 51.97 tonnes per meters cube?*

As;

1 tonnes per meters cube = 10 kilopascals

51.97 tonnes per meters cube = Y kilopascals

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

Y equals 51.97 times 10 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 51.97 * 10 / 1 = 519.7 kilopascals

Answer is: 519.7 kilopascals are equivalent to 51.97 tonnes per meters cube.
