Pressure Conversion Calculator

Pressure is described as force per unit area and is analogous to stress. Absolute pressure refers to the absolute value of force per unit area exerted by a fluid on the walls of its container. Pressure is considered as an average physical quantity.

Pressure is the force exerted by the gas on each unit area of surface. In SI the unit of pressure is a derived unit called the Pascal (Pa), which is measured in newtons per square meter (Nm-2).

Pressure conversion factors.

1 Pa
= 7.50 $\times$ 10-3 torr
= 9.87 $\times$ 10-6 atm
1 atm
= 101 325 Pa  = 760 torr 
1 torr (mm Hg)
= 133.3 Pa  = 1.315 $\times$ 10-3 atm

  1. Express a pressure of 5.00$\times$104 Pa in atm.


    Step 1 :  

    Given data


    Pressure = 5.00$\times$104 Pa



    Step 2 :  

    Convert the pressure given in Pascal to atmosphere.


    $(5.00 \times 10^{4} Pa) \times \frac{1\ atm}{1.01325 \times 10^{5}Pa} = \frac{5.00 \times 10^{4}}{1.01325 \times 10^{5}}$


    = 0.493 atm



    Answer  :  

    The answer is Pressure = 0.493 atm.



  2. Express a pressure of 28.3 torr in Pa.


    Step 1 :  

    Given data


    Pressure = 28.3 torr



    Step 2 :  

    Convert the pressure givenin torr to Pascal (Pa).


    $28.3 torr \times \frac{1.01325 \times 10^{5}Pa}{7.60 \times 10^{2} torr} = \frac{(28.3 \times 1.01325) \times 10^{5}}{7.60 \times 10^{2}} = 3.77 \times 10^{3} Pa$


    = 3.77 $\times$ 103 Pa



    Answer  :  

    The answer is Pressure = = 3.77 $\times$ 103 Pa
