The centibar conversion selector here selects the pressure/stress measurement unit to convert to starting from centibars (cbar). To make a conversion starting from a unit of pressure other than centibar, simply click on the "Reset" button.
The centibar is a unit of pressure equal to 1,000 pascals (1 cbar = 1,000 Pa), the SI derived unit of pressure.
One centibar (cbar) is also equal to 10 hectopascals (hPa), or 1.0 kilopascal (kPa), or about 0.00986923267 atmospheres (atm), or 0.01 bars (bar), or 7.5006168 millimeters of mercury at 0 °C (mmHg), or 4.01463 inches of water at 4 °C (inH2O), or 0.1450379 pounds per square inch (psi), or 20.8854343 pounds per square foot (psf) or 7.5006168 torr (Torr).
The centibar is equal to 10,000 dynes per square centimeter (1 cbar = 10,000 dyn/cm2). The dyne (dyn) is a unit of force in the centimetre-gram-second (CGS) system of units while the square centimeter (cm2) is a unit of area in the SI.
