N/m2 - Newton per Square Metre Pressure Unit

Newtons/Square Meter is a unit that shows how the Pascal unit is derived from other SI units. Pressure is defined as Force/Area and the SI unit for Force is Newtons (N) and the SI unit for Area is Sq Meters (m). 1 Newton per Square Metre equals 1 Pascal.

The N/m pressure unit is one of the few units that clearly describes what pressure represents in its name symbol. Although it is not generally used to describe a pressure reading, it can be useful for calculating the force required to generate a certain pressure.

For example if you know the cross sectional area of the inside of a hydraulic ram cylinder (sqm), you can then calculate the required force (N) to generate a particular pressure in Pascals (Pa) by multiplying the two together.

Alternatively you can calculate the hydraulic ram area size (m) needed by dividing the available Force (N) by the Pressure (Pa) or determine the pressure (N/m) produced by the hydraulic system by dividing the Force (N) by the Hydraulic ram area (m).

You can convert a reading in Newtons per Sq Metres into another pressure unit by multiplying it by the relevant converting value listed below.
