kPa and N/m^{2} are both *units of pressure*. We can easily convert kPa to N/m^{2} (kilopascals to Newtons per square meter). To help you out, we created an easy-to-use **kPa to N/m ^{2} calculator**

*(insert kPa, get N/m*. On top of that, we also converted

^{2})**0.001-1000 kPa to N/m**and summarized the results in a neat

^{2}*conversion chart*(below the calculator).

Here is the online calculator you can freely use, followed by the formula and conversion chart:

Say you want to convert 101.325 kPa to N/m^{2} (this is the atmospheric pressure at sea level). You just insert **‘101.325’** in the kPa input field, hit **‘Calculate’**, and you get this result *(screenshot)*:

We can see right away that 101.325 kPa pressure at sea level is equal to **101,325 N/m ^{2}**.

Converting these pressure units is quite easy, here is how the math goes:

### kPa To Newton Per Square Meter Formula

Here is how both of these pressure units are defined:

**kPa**stands for; that’s 1000s of Pa (Pascals). Since 1 Pa is defined as a force of 1 N (Newton) being exerted on 1 m**k**ilo**pa**scals^{2}area, 1000 Pa or 1 kPa is a force of 1000 N being exerted on 1 m^{2}surface area.**N/m**stands for^{2}. 1 N/m**N**ewtons per**sq**uare**m**eter^{2}is thus pressure of 1 N force being exerted to 1 m^{2}area. From this we see that N/m^{2}is basically the definition of Pa (Pascal).

From the definitions, we see the following relationship:

**1 kPa = 1000 N/m ^{2}**

Basically, 1 kPa is equal to 1000 N/m^{2}. To calculate N/m^{2} from kPa, we use the following formula:

**N/m ^{2} = kPa Ã— 1000**

We see that we have to multiply kPa by a factor of 1000 to get Newtons per square meter.

Quick Example: *How many N/m ^{2} is 55 kPa?* We just insert 55 kPa in the equation above like this:

N/m^{2} (55 kPa) = *55 kPa* Ã— 1000 = **55,000 N/m ^{2}**

We can quickly calculate that 55 kPa is equal to **55,000 N/m ^{2}**. You can use the calculator above to check this result.

This is just one example. We converted 0.0001 to 1000 kPa into N/m^{2} to create this conversion chart:
