pound/square inch
megabar

The above form works if you are measuring differential pressure, such as the difference in psi between two points. It also gives the correct answer for absolute pressure, assuming you are measuring psia, which is the pressure relative to absolute zero vacuum.

If you are measuring relative to vacuum and want to resolve the pressure relative to the atmosphere, then you should use the form below.

pound/square inch (relative to atmosphere)
megabar (relative to vacuum)

›› Definition: Pound/square inch

The pound per square inch or, more accurately, pound-force per square inch (symbol: psi or lbf/in˛ or lbf/in˛) is a unit of pressure or of stress based on avoirdupois units. It is the pressure resulting from a force of one pound-force applied to an area of one square inch.


›› Definition: Megabar

The SI prefix "mega" represents a factor of 106, or in exponential notation, 1E6.

So 1 megabar = 106 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.
