# Convert MPa to kg/cm2

 Pressure (kg/cm2): Pressure (MPa):
 The calculator allows you to convert kg/cm2 to MPa. Perform the reverse calculation: convert MPa to kg/cm2
 1 kg/cm2 = 0.0980665 MPa (approximately equal to)1 Mpa = 10.1971621298 kg/cm2 (approximately equal to)

To convert kg/cm2 (kilogram per square centimeter) to MPa (megapascal), multiply by 0.0980665.

## Example 1

We are going to convert a pressure p of 50 kg/cm2 to MPa.
Pressure p = 50 kg/cm2
1 kg/cm2 = 0.0980665 MPa
p = 50 kg/cm2 = 50 x 0.0980665 = 4.90 MPa

## Example 2

Suppose you have a pressure gauge that measures the pressure of a hydraulic system in units of kilograms per square centimeter (kg/cm2), and you want to know the equivalent value in megapascals (MPa). If the gauge reads 70 kg/cm2, you can convert this value to MPa by multiplying it by the conversion factor 0.0980665:
70 kg/cm2 x 0.0980665 = 6.86 MPa

## Example 3

Let's say you have a compressive strength test result for a concrete sample that is given in units of kilograms per square centimeter (kg/cm2). The test result shows that the concrete has a compressive strength of 500 kg/cm2. To convert this value to megapascals (MPa), you can use the conversion factor 0.0980665: 500 kg/cm2 x 0.0980665 = 49.03 MPa

To read the table, look at the left-hand column, which lists the values in kilograms per square centimeter (kg/cm2). Then, look at the corresponding value in the right-hand column, which gives the value in megapascals (MPa) for that same pressure. For example, if you look at the row with "300" in the left-hand column, you can see that the corresponding value in the right-hand column is "29.42" MPa. This means that a pressure of 300 kg/cm2 is equivalent to a pressure of 29.42 MPa.

## Kg/cm2

Kilogram per square centimetre (kg/cm2) (or kilogram-force per centimetre square kgf/cm2) is a unit of pressure using metric units. Kilogram per Square Centimeter (kg/cm2) or Kilogram Force per Square Centimeter (kgf/cm2) is a pressure unit that has been largely superseded by the SI unit system of pascal units. 1 kg/cm2 equals 98 066.5 pascal. Kilograms per square centimeter are used to measure pressure, which is the amount of force being applied per unit area. For example, if a weight of 10 kilograms is placed on a surface with an area of 1 square centimeter, the pressure being applied is 10 kg/cm2. It is important to note that while kg/cm² is a widely used unit of pressure, it is not recognized as an SI unit (the SI unit is the International System of Units). The SI unit of pressure, the pascal (Pa), is preferred.

## Megapascal (MPa)

A megapascal (MPa) is a unit of pressure, commonly used in engineering and physics. It is defined as one million pascals (Pa), which is the SI unit of pressure. The SI base units are the standard units of measurement defined by the International System of Units (SI). In practical terms, a megapascal is a measure of the amount of force being applied over a certain area. For example, if you have a hydraulic press that can apply a force of 1 000 newtons over an area of 1 square millimeter, the pressure being applied is 1 000 000 Pa or 1 MPa.

It is important to note that while the megapascal is a widely used unit of pressure, there are many other units of pressure that are commonly used as well, such as pounds per square inch (psi), bar, and atmospheres (atm).

The pascal (symbol: Pa) is the SI unit of pressure. It is named after the French mathematician, physicist, and philosopher Blaise Pascal. The pascal is defined as the pressure exerted by a force of one newton (N) acting on an area of one square meter (m2).
