Q:
# How Do You Convert Torr to KPa?

**A pressure in torr can be converted to kPa by dividing by 760 and then multiplying by 101.33.** Each torr of pressure is therefore approximately equal to 0.13 kPa.

One torr is defined as exactly 1/760 atm, while 1 atm is defined as 101.33 kPa. The torr is attributed to, and named after, Evangelista Torricelli. Torricelli is know for his work with the barometer, and his studies of atmospheric pressure led to the birth of meteorology. The torr was originally representative of standard atmospheric pressure, but it was later redefined as 1/760 atm as more was learned about the effects of temperature and gravity on the element mercury, and the pascal became the new standard of measurement for atmospheric pressure.
