# How do you convert mmHg to kPa?

## How do you convert mmHg to kPa?

A pressure measured in millimetres of mercury can be converted to a kilopascals reading using the following conversion factor calculation:

1. 1 kPa = 1000 pascals (Pa)
2. 1 mmHg = 133.322 pascals (Pa)
3. kPa value x 1000 Pa = mmHg value x 133.322 Pa.
4. kPa value = mmHg value x 0.133322.

### How do you convert kPa to mmHg?

Using the values for each in SI pressure units, any pressure in kilopascals can be converted to millimetre of mercury units using the conversion factor below:

1. 1 mmHg = 133.322 Pascals (Pa)
2. 1 kPa = 1000 Pascals (Pa)
3. mmHg value x 133.322 Pa = kPa value x 1000 Pa.
4. mmHg value = kPa value x 7.50062.

#### What does kPa and mmHg mean?

KPa stands for kilopascal and describes the pressure exerted on a surface. KPa is widely used internationally as a unit of pressure and also measures eg the tyre pressure of cars. The unit mmHg (millimeter mercury column) is also used to measure blood pressure.

What is standard pressure in kPa?

For example, standard atmospheric pressure (or 1 atm) is defined as 101.325 kPa. The millibar, a unit of air pressure often used in meteorology, is equal to 0.1 kPa. (For comparison, one pound per square inch equals 6.895 kPa.)

Is mmHg the same as atm?

I. One atm. equals 760.0 mm Hg, so there will be a multiplication or division based on the direction of the change. Example #1: Convert 0.875 atm to mmHg. Solution: multiply the atm value by 760.0 mmHg / atm.

## Why do we use mmHg?

And the height the mercury rises to is a convenient measure of atmospheric pressure and can be read off using a simple ruler. We could use mm of water, but would need a much longer tube and an unusually inconveniently sized ruler. Hence why mercury is the fluid and a convenient way of measuring pressure is mm of Hg.

### How to convert KPA value to mmHg value?

mmHg to kPa Conversion Table. A pressure measured in millimetres of mercury can be converted to a kilopascals reading using the following conversion factor calculation: 1 kPa = 1000 pascals (Pa) 1 mmHg = 133.322 pascals (Pa) kPa value x 1000 Pa = mmHg value x 133.322 Pa. kPa value = mmHg value x 0.133322.

#### How is pressure measured in millimetres of mercury converted to KPA?

mmHg to kPa Conversion Table. A pressure measured in millimetres of mercury can be converted to a kilopascals reading using the following conversion factor calculation: 1 kPa = 1000 pascals (Pa) 1 mmHg = 133.322 pascals (Pa) kPa value x 1000 Pa = mmHg value x 133.322 Pa.

How to convert pressure in millimetres to kilopascals?

A pressure measured in millimetres of mercury can be converted to a kilopascals reading using the following conversion factor calculation: 1 kPa= 1000 pascals (Pa) 1 mmHg= 133.322 pascals (Pa) kPa value x 1000 Pa = mmHg value x 133.322 Pa

Which is greater 325 mmHg or 325 KPA?

mmHg to Kilopascal Conversion Example Task: Convert 325 mmHg to kilopascals (show work) Formula: mmHg x 0.1333223684 = kPa Calculations: 325 mmHg x 0.1333223684 = 43.32977 kPa Result: 325 mmHg is equal to 43.32977 kPa
