Pressure is described as force per unit area and is analogous to stress. Absolute pressure refers to the absolute value of force per unit area exerted by a fluid on the walls of its container. Pressure is considered as an average physical quantity.

Pressure is the force exerted by the gas on each unit area of surface. In SI the unit of pressure is a derived unit called the Pascal (Pa), which is measured in newtons per square meter (Nm-2).

Pressure conversion factors.

 1 Pa = 7.50 $\times$ 10-3 torr = 9.87 $\times$ 10-6 atm 1 atm = 101 325 Pa = 760 torr 1 torr (mm Hg) = 133.3 Pa = 1.315 $\times$ 10-3 atm

## Steps for Pressure Conversion Calculator

1. ### Express a pressure of 5.00$\times$104 Pa in atm.

Step 1 :

Given data

Pressure = 5.00$\times$104 Pa

Step 2 :

Convert the pressure given in Pascal to atmosphere.

$(5.00 \times 10^{4} Pa) \times \frac{1\ atm}{1.01325 \times 10^{5}Pa} = \frac{5.00 \times 10^{4}}{1.01325 \times 10^{5}}$

= 0.493 atm

The answer is Pressure = 0.493 atm.

2. ### Express a pressure of 28.3 torr in Pa.

Step 1 :

Given data

Pressure = 28.3 torr

Step 2 :

Convert the pressure givenin torr to Pascal (Pa).

$28.3 torr \times \frac{1.01325 \times 10^{5}Pa}{7.60 \times 10^{2} torr} = \frac{(28.3 \times 1.01325) \times 10^{5}}{7.60 \times 10^{2}} = 3.77 \times 10^{3} Pa$

= 3.77 $\times$ 103 Pa

The answer is Pressure = = 3.77 $\times$ 103 Pa
