›› Definition: Hectopascal

The SI prefix "hecto" represents a factor of 102, or in exponential notation, 1E2.

So 1 hectopascal = 102 pascals.

The definition of a pascal is as follows:

The pascal (symbol Pa) is the SI unit of pressure.It is equivalent to one newton per square metre. The unit is named after Blaise Pascal, the eminent French mathematician, physicist and philosopher.


›› Definition: Millimeter of mercury

The torr (symbol: Torr) or millimetre of mercury (mmHg) is a non-SI unit of pressure. It is the atmospheric pressure that supports a column of mercury 1 millimetre high. The unit is named after Evangelista Torricelli, Italian physicist and mathematician, for his discovery of the principle of the barometer in 1643.
