1 decibar to megapascal = 0.01 megapascal
10 decibar to megapascal = 0.1 megapascal
50 decibar to megapascal = 0.5 megapascal
100 decibar to megapascal = 1 megapascal
200 decibar to megapascal = 2 megapascal
500 decibar to megapascal = 5 megapascal
1000 decibar to megapascal = 10 megapascal
You can do the reverse unit conversion from megapascal to decibar, or enter any two units below:
decibar to gram/square centimeter
decibar to millimeter mercury
decibar to micrometer of water
decibar to attopascal
decibar to kilogram/square centimeter
decibar to zettabar
decibar to meganewton/square meter
decibar to kilopond/square centimeter
decibar to millimeter of water
decibar to centimeter of mercury
The SI prefix "deci" represents a factor of 10-1, or in exponential notation, 1E-1.
So 1 decibar = 10-1 bars.
The definition of a bar is as follows:
The bar is a measurement unit of pressure, equal to 1,000,000 dynes per square centimetre (baryes), or 100,000 newtons per square metre (pascals). The word bar is of Greek origin, báros meaning weight. Its official symbol is "bar"; the earlier "b" is now deprecated, but still often seen especially as "mb" rather than the proper "mbar" for millibars.
The SI prefix "mega" represents a factor of 106, or in exponential notation, 1E6.
So 1 megapascal = 106 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.
