## Table of pressure units, symbols, and their equivalents

Unit | Symbol | Equivalent |
---|---|---|

Newtons per millimeter squared | N/mm² | 1 N/mm² = 1 Pa |

Megapascals | MPa | 1 MPa = 1,000,000 Pa |

Kilopascals | kPa | 1 kPa = 1,000 Pa |

Pounds per square inch | psi | 1 psi ≈ 6894.76 Pa |

Thousands of pounds per square inch | ksi | 1 ksi = 1000 psi |

## The units of pressure are:

**Newtons per millimeter squared (N/mm²):** This is a unit of pressure in the International System of Units (SI). It represents the force exerted per unit area, where one newton per millimeter squared is equal to one pascal (Pa), the SI unit of pressure.

**Megapascals (MPa):** Megapascals are another unit of pressure in the SI system. One megapascal is equal to one million pascals. It is commonly used to measure high levels of pressure, such as in engineering and materials science.

**Kilopascals (kPa):** Kilopascals are a smaller unit of pressure in the SI system, where one kilopascal is equal to one thousand pascals. Kilopascals are often used in applications such as weather forecasting, where atmospheric pressure is measured.

**Pounds per square inch (psi):** Pounds per square inch is a unit of pressure commonly used in the United States and some other countries. It represents the pressure exerted by one pound-force applied over an area of one square inch.

**Thousands of pounds per square inch (ksi):** Thousands of pounds per square inch is a unit of pressure used primarily in engineering and materials science. It represents pressure in multiples of one thousand pounds per square inch, where one ksi is equal to one thousand psi.

These units are used to quantify and express the amount of force applied over a given area, with each unit providing a different scale or magnitude of pressure measurement.
