    Barad
    lang:""
    A barad is a dyne per square centimetre (\(dyn \cdot cm^{-2}\)), and is equal to \(0.1 Pa \) (\(1 \, micro \, bar\), \(0.000014504 \, p.s.i.\)). Note that this is precisely the microbar, the confusable bar being related in size to the normal atmospheric pressure, at \(100\,dyn \cdot cm^{-2}\). Accordingly barad was not abbreviated, so occurs prefixed as in \(cbarad = centibarad\). Despite being the coherent unit for pressure in c.g.s., barad was probably much less common than the non-coherent bar. Barad is sometimes called \(barye\), a name also used for \(bar\).
