# Convert MPa to kg/cm2

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

To convert MPa (megapascal) to kg/cm2 (kilogram per square centimeter), multiply by 10.1971621298.

## Example 1

We are going to convert a pressure p of 2.5 MPa to kg/cm2.
Pressure p = 2.5 MPa
1 MPa = 10.1971621298 kg/cm2
p = 2.5 MPa = 50 x 10.1971621298 = 25.49 kg/cm2

## Example 2

A pressure vessel is rated to withstand a pressure of 20 MPa. What is this pressure in kg/cm2?

Solution:
We know that 1 MPa = 10.1971621298 kg/cm2 (approximately)
20 MPa = 20 x 10.1971621298 = 203.94 kg/cm2

## Example 3

The yield strength of a steel rod is 300 MPa. What is this yield strength in kg/cm2?

Solution:
300 MPa = 300 x 10.1971621298 = 3059.15 kg/cm2

The table shows the conversion factor for converting from megapascals (MPa) to kilograms per square centimeter (kg/cm²). Each row in the table corresponds to a specific value of MPa, and the columns show the corresponding value of kg/cm² for that MPa value. For example, if you want to convert 5 megapascals to kilograms per square centimeter, you would look in the row for 5 MPa, and then find the value in the column for kg/cm². In this case, the value is 50.99 kg/cm².

## 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).

## 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Square Centimeter (kg/cm2) or Kilogram Force per Square Centimeter (kgf/cm2) is a pressure unit that has been largely superseded by the SI unit system of pascal units. 1 kg/cm2 equals 98 066.5 pascal.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.
