What are the different units of pressure?

The units of pressure plays a vital role in the field of thermodynamics and heat transfer.Therefore,in this article,I am going to explain about the different units of pressure in a detailed manner.

Units of Pressure:

  • 1 atm    =101.325KPa

                    =760mm of Hg Column

                    =10.33 m of H2O Column

 

  • 1bar       =10^5 Pascals

                     =100Kpa

                     =751.6 mm of Hg Column

 

  • 1torr      =1mm of Hg

                     =133.33 Pascals

 

  • For High Pressures,go for ‘Hg’ manometers
  • For Low Pressures,go for ‘water’ manometers.

 

  • Pabsolute=Patm+Pguage
  • Pabsolute=Patm-Pvaccum

 

Note:For calculations part,Vaccum and Guage pressures are not used.Therefore,Absolute pressure comes into picture.
