What is dyne per square centimeter?

The dyne per square centimetre (or dyne per square centimeter) is a unit of pressure equal to 0.1 pascals (1 dyn/cm² = 0.1 Pa), the SI derived unit of pressure. It is also equal to 0.001 hectopascals (hPa), or 0.0001 kilopascals (kPa), or about 9.86923267x10-7 atmospheres (atm), or 10-6 bars (bar), or 7.50062x10-4 millimeters of mercury at 0 °C (mmHg), or 0.000401463 inches of water at 4 °C (inH2O), or 1.45038x10-5 pounds per square inch (psi), or 2.088543x10-3 pounds per square foot (psf) or 7.50062x10-4 torr (Torr).

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.
