What is kilogram-force per square centimeter?

The kilogram-force per square centimetre (or kilogram-force per square centimeter) is a unit of pressure equal to 98,066.5 pascals (1 kgf/cm² = 98,066.5 Pa), the SI derived unit of pressure. It is also equal to 980.665 hectopascals (hPa), or 98.0665 kilopascals (kPa), or about 0.967841105 atmospheres (atm), or 0.980665 bars (bar), or 735.55924 millimeters of mercury at 0 °C (mmHg), or 393.7 inches of water at 4 °C (inH2O), or 14.22334 pounds per square inch (psi), or 2,048.16144 pounds per square foot (psf) or 735.55924 torr (Torr).

The kilogram-force per square centimeter is the pressure that results when a force of one kilogram-force is applied (uniformly and perpendicularly) on a surface of one square centimeter. The kilogram-force (kgf) is a unit of force while the square centimeter (cm²) is a unit of area.

The kilogram-force per square centimeter is used in engineering.
