Pressure defines how much force is applied for a given area. Pressure Calculator is a online tool to calculate force, area or pressure. You just have to enter any 2 among these quantities and get the unknown quantity instantly.

Steps for Pressure Calculators

Step 1 :

Read the problem and note down the given quantities

Step 2 :

To find the pressure use formula

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

Substitute the values in above formula and get the answer.

Problems on Pressure Calculators

1. Calculate the pressure on a wall having an area of 20 m2 when force of 100 N acts on it?

Step 1 :

Given: Force F = 100 N, Area A = 20 m2

Step 2 :

The pressure P is given by

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

= $\frac{100}{20}$

= 5 N/m2.

Pressure is 10 N/m2.

2. Find the area of the container if a force of 160 N acts giving out the pressure of 20 Pascal.

Step 1 :

Given: Force F = 160 N, Pressure P = 20 Pascal

Step 2 :

The Area A is given by

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

= $\frac{160}{20}$

= 8 m2.
