Pascal is the SI unit for pressure and is derived from other SI units using the following relationship: Pa = (kg.m/s²)/m² = kg/m.s² = N/m². Since 1 pascal is a very low pressure being 1/100 of a millibar, it's use is limited to ultra low gas pressure applications such as measuring the pressure differences in ventilation systems.
The pascal is more commonly used as larger multiples of the unit which are the hectopascal (hPa), kilopascal (kPa) and the megapascal (MPa) unit, these are more practical when measuring mid range pressures.
Unlike other units such as psi, kgf/cm2, mH2O and inHg the pressure value that the pascal unit represents is unchanging no matter where and how it is used. The pascal unit is completely independent of ambient temperature, local gravity and media density.
To determine the equivalent value of a pascal measurement in other units you can multiply it by the choices displayed in the table below.
