›› Definition: Millibar

A millibar (mb) is 1/1000th of a bar, a unit for measurement of pressure. It is not an SI unit of measure, however it is one of the units used in meteorology when describing atmospheric pressure. The SI unit is the pascal (Pa), with 1 millibar = 100 pascals (a hectopascal)

›› Definition: Centibar

The SI prefix "centi" represents a factor of 10-2, or in exponential notation, 1E-2.

So 1 centibar = 10-2 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.
