# 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:

 Units English Metric $$\large{ p }$$ = pressure $$\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}$$ $$\large{Pa}$$ $$\large{ A }$$ = area $$\large{ft^2}$$ $$\large{m^2}$$ $$\large{ F }$$ = force $$\large{lbf}$$ $$\large{N}$$

### Solve For:

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