hPa or inch of mercury
The SI derived unit for pressure is the pascal.
1 pascal is equal to 0.01 hPa, or 0.00029529983071445 inch of mercury.
Note that rounding errors may occur, so always check the results.

1 hPa to inch of mercury = 0.02953 inch of mercury
10 hPa to inch of mercury = 0.2953 inch of mercury
20 hPa to inch of mercury = 0.5906 inch of mercury
30 hPa to inch of mercury = 0.8859 inch of mercury
40 hPa to inch of mercury = 1.1812 inch of mercury
50 hPa to inch of mercury = 1.4765 inch of mercury
100 hPa to inch of mercury = 2.953 inch of mercury
200 hPa to inch of mercury = 5.906 inch of mercury
You can do the reverse unit conversion from inch of mercury to hPa, or enter any two units below:
hPa to decitorr
hPa to femtobar
hPa to micron of mercury
hPa to femtopascal
hPa to torr
hPa to foot of air
hPa to ton/square foot
hPa to kilopond/square millimeter
hPa to kilobar
hPa to dyne/square centimeter
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.
Inches of mercury or inHg is a non-SI unit for pressure. It is still widely used for barometric pressure in weather reports and aviation in the United States, but is considered somewhat outdated elsewhere.
It is defined as the pressure exerted by a column of mercury of 1 inch in height at 32 °F (0 °C) at the standard acceleration of gravity.
1 inHg = 3,386.389 pascals at 0 °C.
Aircraft operating at higher altitudes (above 18,000 feet) set their barometric altimeters to a standard pressure of 29.92 inHg or 1,013.2 hPa (1 hPa = 1 mbar) regardless of the actual sea level pressure, with inches of mercury used in the U.S. and Canada. The resulting altimeter readings are known as flight levels.
Piston engine aircraft with constant-speed propellers also use inHg to measure manifold pressure, which is indicative of engine power produced.
