# Pressure

Pressure is a kind of force. In the language of physics, a force is an object that changes or tries to change its state by acting on it or that changes or tries to change its motion by acting on a moving object.

For example, if someone pushes against a wall, the force is applied whether it changes its position or not. This effort is called force. On the other hand, the force exerted on a single area is called pressure.

This means that if we apply a force in a single case, it will be a force.

Pressure = (force ÷ area)

As an example, it is easy to take a photo with a pin because the area is less. Again, more pressure is required in the area.

**The Unit of Pressure**

Pressure scalar quantity, because it has value but has no direction. The SI unit of pressure is Pascal, which is equal to Newton per square meter (N/m²). Since an object or group of objects under pressure can act on its surroundings, the pressure is also measured as static energy in a single volume. It is related to the density of energy and can be expressed in joules unit per cubic meter (joules/m³, which is equal to Pascal). To make this concept precise, we use the idea of pressure. The pressure is defined to be the amount of force exerted per area.

Thanks for reading this article! Hopefully, it helps you understand what pressure is and how we measure the pressure of an object.
