asked in category: General Last Updated: 18th February, 2020# What's the difference between PSI and Bar?

**difference between psi and bar is**that

**psi**measures pressure as a one-pound force applied on an area of one square inch whereas

**bar**measures pressure as a force applied perpendicularly on a unit area of a surface. Specifically,

**psi**measures pressure or stress, whereas

**bar**only measures pressure.

Regarding this, is bar the same as PSI?

For all pressure unit conversions, please check pressure converter. What is **Psi** (Pound force per square inch)? **Psi** (pound force per square inch) is 1 pound of force per square inch. **Bar** is about equal to the atmospheric pressure at sea level and defined as 100000 pascals (100 kPa).

Also Know, what is a bar air pressure? **Bar**. The **bar** is a unit of **pressure** defined as 100 kilopascals. It is about equal to **the atmospheric pressure** on Earth at sea level. Other units derived from the **bar** are the megabar (symbol: Mbar), kilobar (symbol: kbar), decibar (symbol: dbar), centibar (symbol: cbar), and millibar (symbol: mbar or mb).
