**Definitions:**

**Tonne Per Meter Cube** (abbreviations: **t/m2, or tpm2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength interms of tonne per meter cube.

**Pascal** (abbreviations: **Pa, or N/m2**): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength. It is one newton per square meter. It is named after the French polymath Blaise Pascal.

## How to Convert Tonnes Per Meters Cube to Pascals

*Example: How many pascals are equivalent to 11.78 tonnes per meters cube?*

As;

1 tonnes per meters cube = 10000 pascals

11.78 tonnes per meters cube = Y pascals

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 11.78 times 10000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 11.78 * 10000 / 1 = 117800 pascals

Answer is: 117800 pascals are equivalent to 11.78 tonnes per meters cube.
