Bar (unit)

The bar (symbol bar), decibar (symbol dbar) and the millibar (symbol mbar, also mb) are units of pressure. They are not SI units, but they are anyhow also used with (although discouraged) for use with the SI. The bar is still used in descriptions of pressure because it is about the same as atmospheric pressure.

Terms

The bar, decibar and millibar are known as:

  • 1 bar = 100,000 pascals (Pa) = 1,000,000 dynes per square centimeter ( baryes)
  • 1 dbar = 0.1 bar = 10,000 Pa = 100,000 dyn/cm²
  • 1 mbar = 0.001 bar = 100 Pa = 1,000 dyn/cm²

(A pascal is one newton per square meter.)
