Explanation of the Calculator.
The conversions used in this calculator are as follows.

1 Atmosphere (atm)
= 1.0132501 Bar (b)
= 29.9212583 Inches of Mercury (inHg)
= 10332.275548 Kilograms per Square Metre (kg/m^2)
= 101.32501 Kilopascal (kpa)
= 9.935 Metres of 1.040 Wort
= 760 Millimetres of Mercury (mmHg)
= 101325.01 Pascal (Pa)
= 14.695950254 Pounds per Square Inch (psi)
= 760 Torr (torr)

Bibliography

The calculations for 'Metres of 1.040 Wort' comes from:
Briggs DE, Boulton CA, Brookes PA, Stevens R (2004) 'Brewing - Science and Practice.' (Woodhead Publishing Limited: Cambridge)

The rest of the calculations can be found in nearly every Chemistry/Physics book.

Note: The calculation used to convert to mmHg varies from source to source. We have used 1atm = 760mmHg exactly. pint.com.au Web
