**Pressure Formula**

**Pressure **is the force applied by one object on the another. It is symbolized by **P**.

Pressure is articulated as force per unit area articulated as

Where,

F = Force applied by the body,

A = Total area of the object.

**Pressure Formula** is given by

Where,

the height is h,

density is ρ,

gravity is g

**Pressure Formula** is made use of to compute pressure, force, area, density, height and gravity if some of these numerics are provided. Pressure is articulated in Pascal **(Pa)**.

**Pressure Solved Examples**

Underneath are problems based on pressure which may be helpful for you.

**Problem 1: **A 60 Kg girl wearing high heel shoes stabilizes herself on a single heel. The heel is rounded with a diameter of 1.5 cm. Calculate the pressure applied by the heel on the horizontal floor?

**Answer:**

**Problem 2: **A tank is filled with water is of height 1 m. Compute the pressure exerted on the bottom of the tank.

(Acceleration due to Gravity = 9.8 m/s^{2}, Density of water = 1000 kg / m^{3}).

**Answer:**

Known:

Acceleration due to Gravity = 9.8 m/s^{2}

Density of water = 1000 kg / m^{3},

The pressure is articulated as

P = ρ × g × h

P = 1000 × 9.8 × 1m

P = 9800 Pascal.
