### Pressure

Force acting on a given surface. I.e. force divided by area, see PSI.

### Pressure

Pressure (symbol: p or P) is the ratio of force to the area over which that force is distributed. Pressure is force per unit area applied in a direction perpendicular to the surface of an object. Gauge pressure (also spelled gage pressure) is the pressure relative to the local atmospheric or ambient pressure. Pressure is measured in any unit of fo...

### Pressure

A type of stress characterized by uniformity in all directions. In dynamics, it is that part of the stress tensor that is independent of viscosity and depends only upon the molecular motion appropriate to the local temperature and density. It is the negative of the mean of the three normal stresses, and is, therefore, a scalar quantity expressed in...
