Down load the Uconeer conversion software for engineers, its free and really useful.

kN/m2..?

Having mental block

Is it multiply by 50..?

You might try this page. Don't know if the conversion table is any use to you, but it's handy www.ex.ac.uk/trol/dictunit/dictunit1.htm

9.81 N=1 kg mass under gravity on earth's surface.

10000 cm2=1 m2.

Therefore, it's around 1050 kg/cm2=1 N/m2.

Err - not the SI unit of a Newton isn't!

The 9.8 would only be if you were talking about a mass that was accelerating in a true vertical fashion, if you are talking about force perpindicular to gravity then gravity doesn't have anything to do with it....

See above...

1 kg-force/sq.centimetre x 98 066.5 = answer in pascals (N/m2)

That'll do i think...!

Well done that man! Of course if you type "1 Newton per meter squared" into google it tells you

1 (Newton per (meter squared)) = 1 Pascal

And hence if you then want to convert that back in Earth's reference then the 9.80665 gets into play.

Anyone get a feeling this could turn into another "big bang" thread!

A kilogram is a unit of mass. A Newton is a unit of force. A force of one Newton will accelerate one kilogram at the rate of one meter per second per second.

While it is in close proximity to the surface of the earth, gravity will exert a FORCE of 9.81 Newtons, directed straight down, on any and every 1-kg object. If there is no other force on the object, this force will cause the object to accelerate at the rate of 9.81 m/s/s. However, if you place the object on a level table, the table will exert a reaction force that is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to said gravitationally exerted force - the force due to gravity doesn't go away, it's just opposed by an equal reaction force giving a net force of zero.
