**Pressure**is the force applied perpendicular to the surface of an object per unit area over which that force is distributed.

## Input

**Bar**is a metric unit of pressure, but not part of the SI units, defined as exactly equal to 100,000 Pa (100 kPa).

## Output

**torr**is a unit of pressure based on an absolute scale, defined as exactly 1/760 of a standard atmosphere or exactly 101325/760 of a pascal.
