# Fluid Pressure

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Fluid at rest, exerts a force perpendicular to any surface in comes in contact with.

### Fluid PRESSURE FORMULA

$$\large{ p = \frac { F } { A } }$$

Where:

$$\large{ p }$$ = pressure

$$\large{ A }$$ = area

$$\large{ F }$$ = force

Solve for:

$$\large{ A = \frac { F } { p } }$$

$$\large{ F = p\;A }$$
