Fluid Pressure

fluid pressure 1Fluid 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:

\(\large{ A = \frac{ F }{ p }   }\)   
\(\large{ F = p \; A   }\)
