# How do you reduce pressure in physics?

To reduce pressure - decrease the force or increase the area the force acts on. If you were standing on a frozen lake and the ice started to crack you could lie down to increase the area in contact with the ice. The same force (your weight) would apply, spread over a larger area, so the pressure would reduce.

Herein, what is the formula for solid pressure?

Pressure is the force on an object that is spread over a surface area. The equation for pressure is P = F/A. Pressure can be measured for a solid is pushing on a solid, but the case of a solid pushing on a liquid or gas requires that the fluid be confined in a container.

Furthermore, what causes liquid pressure? Fluid pressure is a measurement of the force per unit area on a object in the fluid or on the surface of a closed container. This pressure can be caused by gravity, acceleration, or by forces outside a closed container. Since a fluid has no definite shape, its pressure applies in all directions.

Keeping this in consideration, why does pressure increase with depth GCSE?

Pressure increases as the depth increases. Since the particles in a liquid are tightly packed, this pressure acts in all directions. For example, the pressure acting on a dam at the bottom of a reservoir is greater than the pressure acting near the top. This is why dam walls are usually wedge-shaped.

What is the equation for speed?

To solve for speed or rate use the formula for speed, s = d/t which means speed equals distance divided by time. To solve for time use the formula for time, t = d/s which means time equals distance divided by speed.
