Notes

Pressure

Pressure (P) is defined as the force (F) applied per unit area (A) perpendicularly. The pressure exerted by air is called atmospheric pressure. The pressure exerted by liquid is called liquid pressure. This note presents a brief information about pressure, atmospheric pressure and liquid pressure.
