**Megapascal**

**Megapascal (MPa)**is a unit in the category of

*Pressure*. It is also known as megapascals. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Megapascal (MPa) has a dimension of ML

^{-1}T

^{-2}where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit Pa by multiplying its value by a factor of 1000000.
