SI Unit : Pascal

  • There are various types of pressure including Absolute, Atmospheric, Differential, and Gauge Pressure.
  • Along with solids, fluids also exerts pressure.
  • Pressure is highly dependent on area. Lesser the area, higher is the pressure.
  • The primary formula for pressure is P = F/A.
