#1 bar = 1 019.716 212 978 gram-force/square centimeter

  1 bar = 1.019 716 213 kilogram-force/square centimeter

#Even though Bar is not an SI unit it has been adopted as one of the
most popular pressure units particularly in European countries where
most pressure measurement instruments are specified with pressure ranges
in bar.

The value of 1 bar is a close approximation to atmospheric pressure and
is often used to represent atmospheric pressure rather than standard
atmosphere (101325 Pascals) which is the correct value used by the
scientific and engineering community.
