Unique Conversion Factors
These units have an internationally agreed definition for the conversion factor, some have an exact value with very few digits, while others have a lot of digits and may vary very slightly between reference sources, depending on the level of precision used when calculating the values.

Manometric Conversion Factors
The following units are known as manometric pressure units and are derived from the pressure exerted by a column of liquid under the acceleration of earth’s gravity. Each manometric pressure unit is shown with its equivalent value converted into pascals (Pa). The pascal is the SI unit for measuring pressure.
Since the pressure of the fluid column can vary with changes in liquid density and local gravity it is important to quantify these factors when using these units. The physical assumptions that these conversions factors are based can be found at the bottom of this section.
The use of manometric units is discouraged by national standard organisations because they do not precisely represent the true pressure and there are differing conventions used for the temperature and density of the liquid which can lead to variation in accuracy.
