Definitions:

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.

Megapascal (abbreviations: Mpa, or MN/m2, or N/mm2): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength. It is one meganewton per square meter or one newton per square millimeter. It is named after the French polymath Blaise Pascal.

How to Convert Kilopascals to Megapascals

Example: How many megapascals are equivalent to 50.05 kilopascals?


As;


1 kilopascals = 0.001 megapascals


50.05 kilopascals = Y megapascals


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


Y equals 50.05 times 0.001 over 1


(i.e.) Y = 50.05 * 0.001 / 1 = 0.05005 megapascals


Answer is: 0.05005 megapascals are equivalent to 50.05 kilopascals.
