Convert units of pressure, length, time, force, mass, accel., temp, speed, frequency, area, & more!
function [bar] = kPa2bar(kPa)
% Convert pressure from kilopascals to bar. It's interesting how we tend
% to say "bar" as the plural for "bar". I've heard people say "millibars"
% but I've also heard "millibar" as its plural. The same does not seem to
% be true for other units of pressure. We'd say "5 atmospheres". For some
% reason, I often hear people talk about singular form of animals as their
% plural, too. Of course there's deer and fish, but I'm not talking about
% those. I've actually heard people say "Look at those alpaca" or "we saw
% some bear" or "There are lots of squirrel out today". Strange.
