**Definitions:**

**Bar** (abbreviation: **bar**): is a metric (still not approved by the International System of Units, SI) unit of pressure. It is exactly equal to 100,000 Pa and slightly lower than the current average atmospheric pressure on Earth, at sea level.

**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 Bars to Kilopascals

*Example: How many kilopascals are equivalent to 74.13 Bars?*

As;

1 Bars = 100 kilopascals

74.13 Bars = Y kilopascals

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

Y equals 74.13 times 100 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 74.13 * 100 / 1 = 7413 kilopascals

Answer is: 7413 kilopascals are equivalent to 74.13 Bars.
