# Surface Pressure

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Surface pressure is a two-dimension analog pressure - the lateral force per unit length applied on a line perperdicular to the force.

## Surface Pressure formula

 $$\large{ \pi = \frac { F } { l } }$$

### Where:

$$\large{ \pi }$$ = surface pressure

$$\large{ F }$$ = force

$$\large{ l }$$ = length
