Convert between Terapascal and other Pressure units.

## Terapascal: A Unit of Pressure

A Terapascal (TPa) is a unit of pressure in the International System of Units (SI), equal to one trillion pascals. The pascal, named after the French mathematician and physicist Blaise Pascal, is defined as a force of one newton per square meter. Therefore, a Terapascal represents an immense amount of pressure.

To put this into perspective, atmospheric pressure at sea level is approximately 101.3 kilopascals (kPa), which means 1 TPa is equivalent to about 9,870 atmospheres. This unit is commonly used in fields such as materials science, geophysics, and engineering, particularly when discussing pressures in extreme environments, such as inside the Earth or during high-energy experiments.

As scientific research and technology advance, understanding and utilizing the Terapascal can lead to breakthroughs in various applications, from deep-sea exploration to the development of new materials.
