The pressure converter is one of our most specific converters. Most of you do not need to make pressure conversion often, and it is totally understandable. But we know that the pressure conversion is one of these a little bit more complicated. Probably you know it if you are here right now. And that’s why we made our pressure converter – to make pressure conversion easy for all of you. Both these ones who like calculating on your own and who really hate it.
This article is dedicated mostly to the pressure converter, but we want to talk not only about it. What do we mean? We are going to tell you about the pressure at all too. The theory is a base of any kind of conversion, also the pressure conversion. That’s why we want to talk about it.
The topic of pressure will be discussed in the first part of this article. Then we will move on to the pressure converter. You will learn what it is, how it works and how to use it. At the end, we will give you a practical example – it is the best way to show the capabilities of the pressure converter.
So let’s start with the theory. What is the definition of the pressure? The definition is as follows: the pressure is the amount of force exerted by the area. It is the simplest version of the definition. If you need to know what is the pressure in a more precise way, have a look at this version: the pressure is a continuous physical force exerted on (or against) a particular object by something which is in contact with this object.
We hope that now the term of pressure is clearer for you. So if you know what the pressure is, let’s have a look at what the units of pressure are.
We are going to tell you about 5 different units of pressure. The first one is the most commonly used. We are talking about the Pascal, the pressure unit from the International System of Units (SI). The Pascal is equal to one Newton per square meter (Pa = N/m2). Two also quite commonly used units of pressure are pounds per square inch (lb/in2) and bar (equal to 100 kPa – it means kilopascals). And the last two units of pressure, which we want to mention are grams-force (g/cm2) and kilograms-force (kg/cm2). These ones are quite rarely used.
All aforementioned units of pressure you can see also down below:
- Pascal (Pa = N/m2);
- pounds per square inch (lb/in2);
- bar (100 kPa);
- grams-force (g/cm2);
- kilograms-force (kg/cm2).
Now it is time for an example from everyday life. If you check the weather, you will probably see not only the temperature but also pressure. To be more precise, the atmospheric pressure given in hectopascals (hPa). For instance, it can be 1030 hPa.
We hope that this information about the pressure is sufficient for you and we make this topic a little bit clearer. So now we can move on to our pressure converter. Keep reading to know this tool better.
Pressure converter – know it better
Let’s start from a scratch. What is the pressure converter? Simply put, it is an online app for making the pressure conversion. It means it is a tool which enables conversion of one unit of pressure to another. What more can we say about it?
The pressure converter is web based, so it means this tool works in the Internet browser. You do not need to download and install anything. Thanks to this our app is available for everyone. There is only one condition to use our pressure converter. It is a very simple one, because these days it is a standard in most places in the world. This condition is having a device with an Internet connection.
We still have not told you everything about our pressure converter. We want to say 3 more things. First, our app contains all units of pressure. All of them with the formulas are put in the specially programmed algorithm to always give you the exact results. Second, this tool works quickly. Or even quicker than you think. Less than a second. It is enough for our pressure converter to calculate the result. Third, we share it with you for free. There are no hidden fees.
So how to use this pressure converter? Just go to the page and enter the data – enter the number, pick the unit of pressure of this number and pick the unit of pressure in which you want to get your final result. That’s it! Could it be easier? We don’t think so.
This was the basic and most important information about our pressure converter. But it was still the theory. Now it is time for practice. An example calculated with the pressure converter is down below.
Pressure converter – see an example
Do you know what is the highest barometric pressure ever recorded? Here is the answer – 1083.8 hPa. This pressure was recorded at Agata in Siberia (Russia) on 31th December 1968. A little tidbit – this value corresponds to being 2000 feet below sea level.
Let’s use this highest barometric pressure to make our example. Calculate 1083.3 hPa to the bar. As we said before, just enter 1083.3, pick the hectopascal as the unit which you currently have and bar as the unit in which you want to get the result. After it the result will be shown immediately. So what is 1083.3 hPa in the bar? The answer is as follows: 1083.3 hPa is equal to 1.0838 bar.
The whole operation with the entering the data took us just a few seconds. We are sure that there is no quicker solution to make pressure conversion than using the pressure converter. Your own calculations, even with the use of a physical calculator or pressure conversion chart, will take so much longer.
Try our pressure converter and see for yourself how quickly and easily you can make any pressure conversion. We are sure that you won’t get back to your own calculations of the pressure after first use of the pressure converter on our website.
