Pressure = Force/Area. Explain.

The pressure is defined as the force exerted on a surface divided by the area over which that force acts. Because pressure is force divided by area, its meter-kilogram-second (MKS) units are newtons per square meter or N/m2. In the foot-pound-second (FPS) system, the units are pounds per square inch or psi. Force is directly proportional to Pressure, which means ,the more force you apply upon a fixed area, the more pressure you create
