Now, conversions between kilopascal (kpa) and the bar become easy and smart with the assistance of this converter. An online kilopascal to bar converter is able to provide you conversions between kilopascals and bars. All you have to enter the number of kilopascals (kpa) into the designated field, the calculator shows you the exact conversions between these units of pressure.

Also, the time comes when you need to do conversions from kpa into bars manually, if so, you just need to account for the given formula, let’s we use this formula in the example below!

But, first, you should beware of some basics!

**What is kpa?**

kPa or or kN/m2 is an acronym for a kilopascal, it is referred to as the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young’s modulus, and ultimate tensile strength. It is said to be one kilonewton per square meter, it is named after the well-known French polymath Blaise Pascal.

**What is bar?**

The bar is a well-known used metric unit of measurement for pressure and 1 bar equals to 100,000 pascals (pa). Even though bar is still not an SI unit, this unit adopted as one of the most common pressure units that has been particularly used in European countries where most pressure measurement instruments are taken into account with pressure ranges in bar.

Remember that the value of 1 bar is a close approximation to atmospheric pressure and typically is considered to indicate atmospheric pressure rather than standard atmosphere (101325 pascals) which is referred to as a precise value used by both the scientific and engineering community.
