What is newton per square meter?

The newton per square metre (or newton per square meter) is a unit of pressure equal to 1 pascal (1N/m² = 1 Pa), the SI derived unit of pressure. It is also equal to 0.01 hectopascals (hPa), or 0.001 kilopascals (kPa), or 9.86923267x10-6 atmospheres (atm), or 10-5 bars (bar), or 0.007500616 millimeters of mercury at 0 °C (mmHg), or 0.00401463 inches of water at 4 °C (inH2O), or 0.000145037 pounds per square inch (psi), or 0.020885434 pounds per square foot (psf) or 0.00750061683 torr (Torr).

The newton per square meter is the pressure that results when a force of one newton is applied (uniformly and perpendicularly) on a surface of one square meter. The newton (N) is an SI derived unit of force while the square meter (m²) is a unit of area in the SI.
