 `How do i convert units MPa to mN/mm^2 ?`
 ```asesto-ga: If you refer to: http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/units.html You will see that a Pascal is derived from one Newton over one square meter (N/m^2). Now, in your question, you have values in MPa that you wish to convert to nN/mm^2. First, write out the units by expanding the prefixes: http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/prefixes.html So, you have: MPa = 10^6 Pa = 10^6 N/m^2 continuing on, let's convert the N to mN: 10^6 N/m^2 = (10^6) * (10^3) mN/m^2 now, convert the m^2 to mm^2: (10^6) * (10^3) mN/(m * m) = (10^6) * (10^3) mN / ( (10^3) mm * (10^3) mm) = (10^3) * (10^3) * (10^3) mN / ((10^3) * (10^3) mm^2 = (10^3) mN/mm^2 Which is the long way of explaining how 1 MPa is equal to 1000 mN/mm^2. So, if you have for example 0.1013 MPa, that is equal to 101.3 mN/mm^2. I hope that this helps you. You can also confirm this by using an online converter such as: http://www.onlineconversion.com/pressure.htm Regards, aht-ga Google Answers Researcher```
