# Is force the same as pressure?

Force is the total impact of one object on another. Pressure is the ratio of force to area over which it is applied. A force is defined as a push or a pull that makes an object change its state of motion or direction.

Similarly, what is relationship between force and pressure?

Pressure is defined as force per unit area (on which the force is acting). One interesting aspect of the relationship between force and pressure is that as the area reduces, pressure rises for the same applied force. For example, it is impossible for a person to move a wall by exerting force on it.

Beside above, what is the unit of force and pressure? Pascal

Also Know, is force a pressure?

Pressure is defined as force per unit area. It is usually more convenient to use pressure rather than force to describe the influences upon fluid behavior. The standard unit for pressure is the Pascal, which is a Newton per square meter.

What do you mean by pressure?

Pressure is defined as the physical force exerted on an object. The force applied is perpendicular to the surface of objects per unit area. Unit of pressure is Pascals (Pa).
