Pressure

In physics, pressure is a measure of the force per unit area applied to the surface of an object.
The SI unit of pressure is the *pascal* (Pa) or *Newton per square meter* (N/m²).
Pressure (*P*) on a surface is defined as the force (*F*) divided by the surface's area (*A*): *P*=*F*/*A*.
When you type on a computer keyboard, the pressure on a key is equal to the force of your finger exerted on the key divided by the area of your fingertip.

Pressure is also often expressed as a depth of a particular fluid in a manometer such as mercury or water (e.g.,*millimeter of mercury* or *centimeter of water*).
For example, blood pressure is measured in *millimeter of mercury*.

Pressure is also often expressed as a depth of a particular fluid in a manometer such as mercury or water (e.g.,
