The SI derived unit for pressure is the pascal.
1 pascal is equal to 0.01 millibar, or 0.01 hectopascal.
Note that rounding errors may occur, so always check the results.

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)
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.
