kPa To N/m2 Calculator: Convert Kilopascals To Newtons Per m2

kPa and N/m2 are both units of pressure. We can easily convert kPa to N/m2 (kilopascals to Newtons per square meter). To help you out, we created an easy-to-use kPa to N/m2 calculator (insert kPa, get N/m2). On top of that, we also converted 0.001-1000 kPa to N/m2 and summarized the results in a neat 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/m2 (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/m2.

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 kilopascals; that’s 1000s of Pa (Pascals). Since 1 Pa is defined as a force of 1 N (Newton) being exerted on 1 m2 area, 1000 Pa or 1 kPa is a force of 1000 N being exerted on 1 m2 surface area.
  • N/m2 stands for Newtons per square meter. 1 N/m2 is thus pressure of 1 N force being exerted to 1 m2 area. From this we see that N/m2 is basically the definition of Pa (Pascal).

From the definitions, we see the following relationship:

1 kPa = 1000 N/m2

Basically, 1 kPa is equal to 1000 N/m2. To calculate N/m2 from kPa, we use the following formula:

N/m2 = kPa × 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/m2 is 55 kPa? We just insert 55 kPa in the equation above like this:

N/m2 (55 kPa) = 55 kPa × 1000 = 55,000 N/m2

We can quickly calculate that 55 kPa is equal to 55,000 N/m2. You can use the calculator above to check this result.

This is just one example. We converted 0.0001 to 1000 kPa into N/m2 to create this conversion chart:
