Pressure  -   In solids If a force is applied over a smaller  surface area you get a larger  pressure. Pressure can be calculated using the  following equation: Newtons N Pascals or N/m 2 m 2
Pressure   increases     with depth.   Pressure acts   equally in all directions.   Pressure   is transmitted through liquids. Pressure - In liquids All hydraulics systems work because the
