Fluid Pressure

on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

fluid pressure 1Fluid pressure is the force exerted by a fluid, such as a liquid or a gas, on the walls of a container or any surface with which it comes into contact.  It is the result of the continuous collisions of fluid particles with the surfaces they encounter.


Fluid PRESSURE formula

\(\large{ p =  \frac { F } { A }  }\)  
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ p }\) = pressure \(\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}\)  \(\large{Pa}\) 
\(\large{ A }\) = area \(\large{ft^2}\) \(\large{m^2}\)
\(\large{ F }\) = force \(\large{lbf}\) \(\large{N}\)
