# kN/m² to Megapascal Conversion

## Kilonewton/Square Meter to Megapascal Conversion - Convert Kilonewton/Square Meter to Megapascal (kN/m² to MPa)

### You are currently converting Pressure units from Kilonewton/Square Meter to Megapascal

1 Kilonewton/Square Meter (kN/m²)

=

0.001 Megapascal (MPa)

Kilonewton/Square Meter : The kilonewton per square meter (kN/m2) is a non-SI unit for pressure. 1 kN/m2 equals 1,000 N/m2. Pressure is defined as force per area and the SI unit for force is Newtons(N) and the SI unit for area is square meters(m2). 1 Newton per square meter equals 1 Pascal, therefore, 1 kN/m2 =1000 Pa.

Megapascal : The megapascal (symbol:MPa) is a non-SI unit for pressure, and is a x1000000 multiple of the Pascal unit. 1 MPa equals 1,000,000 Pa. It is primarily used for higher range pressure measurement and mainly used to describe the pressure ranges and ratings of hydraulic systems.

### FAQ about kN/m² to Megapascal Conversion

1 kilonewton/square meter (kN/m²) is equal to 0.001 megapascal (MPa).

1kN/m² = 0.001MPa

The pressure p in megapascal (MPa) is equal to the pressure p in kilonewton/square meter (kN/m²) times 0.001, that conversion formula:

p(MPa) = p(kN/m²) × 0.001

One Kilonewton/Square Meter is equal to 0.001 Megapascal:

1kN/m² = 1kN/m² × 0.001 = 0.001MPa

One Megapascal is equal to 1000 Kilonewton/Square Meter:

1MPa = 1MPa × 1000 = 1000kN/m²

p(MPa) = 5(kN/m²) × 0.001 = 0.005MPa
