bar > ?

Postby Omar » Tue Jan 30, 2007 9:06 am

I was reading an article on a certain knife, and they performed several tests concerning the strength of the knife, and one of them was how much pressure or weight the locking mechanism could take before the it closed without fingering the proper release.

The rating for this was "80 bar"

Now i've been doing some research and i found out that the bar is the unit of measure for barometers. What i'd like to know is how i would convert that figure into something that makes more sense to me like pounds or kg per inch/cm, or if it would even be possible to convert it to regular Kg or lbs without the area. Thanks in advance for any help.
