Fluid Pressure

on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

fluid pressure 1Fluid pressure is the force exerted by a fluid, such as a liquid or a gas, on the walls of a container or any surface with which it comes into contact.  It is the result of the continuous collisions of fluid particles with the surfaces they encounter.


Fluid PRESSURE formula

\( p =   F \;/\; A   \)     (Fluid Pressure)

\( F =  p \; A   \)

\( A =  F \;/\; p \)

Symbol English Metric
\( p \) = pressure \(lbf\;/\;in^2\)  \(Pa\) 
\( A \) = area \(ft^2\) \(m^2\)
\( F \) = force \(lbf\) \(N\)
