The SI derived unit for pressure is the pascal.
1 pascal is equal to 1000000000 nanopascal, or 0.00029529980164712 inch mercury.
Note that rounding errors may occur, so always check the results.

You can do the reverse unit conversion from inch mercury to nanopascal, or enter any two units below:
nanopascal to millitorr
nanopascal to ton/square meter
nanopascal to atmosphere
nanopascal to yoctobar
nanopascal to pieze
nanopascal to decibar
nanopascal to gram/square centimeter
nanopascal to centimeter mercury
nanopascal to foot mercury
nanopascal to zeptopascal
The SI prefix "nano" represents a factor of 10-9, or in exponential notation, 1E-9.
So 1 nanopascal = 10-9 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widely used for barometric pressure in weather reports and aviation in the United States, but is considered somewhat outdated elsewhere.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.
