You can do the reverse unit conversion from decibar to mm H2O, or enter any two units below:
mm H2O to terapascal
mm H2O to kilogram/square centimeter
mm H2O to yottapascal
mm H2O to newton/square millimeter
mm H2O to millimeter mercury
mm H2O to millimeter of water
mm H2O to kilogram-force/square millimeter
mm H2O to inch of water
mm H2O to foot of air
mm H2O to yoctopascal
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.
