## About gigabar

The **gigabar** is a non-SI unit of pressure equal to 10^{14} pascals (1 Gbar = 10^{14} Pa), the SI derived unit of pressure.

One gigabar (Gbar) is also equal to 10^{11} kilopascals (kPa), or 10^{8} megapascals (MPa), or 9.86923267 × 10^{8} atmospheres (atm), or 10^{9} bars (bar), or 1.450379 × 10^{10} pounds per square inch (psi), or 2.08854343 × 10^{12} pounds per square foot (psf) or 7.5006168 × 10^{11} torr (Torr).

The gigabar is equal to 10^{15} dynes per square centimeter (1 Gbar = 10^{15} dyn/cm^{2}). The dyne (dyn) is a unit of force in the centimetre-gram-second (CGS) system of units while the square centimeter (cm^{2}) is a unit of area in the SI.
