The gigabar conversion selector here selects the pressure/stress measurement unit to convert to starting from gigabars (Gbar). To make a conversion starting from a unit of pressure other than gigabar, simply click on the "Reset" button.
The gigabar is a non-SI unit of pressure equal to 1014 pascals (1 Gbar = 1014 Pa), the SI derived unit of pressure.
One gigabar (Gbar) is also equal to 1011 kilopascals (kPa), or 108 megapascals (MPa), or 9.86923267 × 108 atmospheres (atm), or 109 bars (bar), or 1.450379 × 1010 pounds per square inch (psi), or 2.08854343 × 1012 pounds per square foot (psf) or 7.5006168 × 1011 torr (Torr).
The gigabar is equal to 1015 dynes per square centimeter (1 Gbar = 1015 dyn/cm2). The dyne (dyn) is a unit of force in the centimetre-gram-second (CGS) system of units while the square centimeter (cm2) is a unit of area in the SI.
