What is the relation between Force, Pressure, and Area?


Pressure: The pressure is defined as force per unit area. Mathematically, the pressure is nothing but force divided by area.

Here the force is in the numerator and the area is in the denominator

Pressure = $\frac{Force}{Area}$

For example, the pressure applied when a force of 20 N applied to an area of 5 square meters is $\frac{20}{5}$ = 4 pascal.
