Pressure is force per unit area applied in a direction perpendicular to the surface of an object. The perpendicular force applied is called thrust. Pressure = force/area SI unit: Pascal, denoted by Pa
The two important factors on which pressure depends are - Force and Area.
Learn practical applications of pressure in daily life -School bags have wider straps ,It is easier to walk on a sand with flat shoes rather then shoes with sharp heels. Understands the atmospheric pressure. The atmospheric air extends up to many kilometres above the surface of the earth. The pressure exerted by this air is known as atmospheric pressure.
