### Pressure

Question | Answer |
---|---|

Pressure | the amount of force acting per given area |

calculation for pressure | P=F/A (F over A) |

The same force spread over a larger area means _______ pressure | less |

more force spread over the same area means ______ pressure | more |

________ can be compressed and expanded quite easily | Gasses |

liquids and solids are _______________ | incompressible |

incompressible | connot be compressed by normal means |

Force is measured in ________ | newtons (N) |

area is measured in: | m2 (meters squared - 2 must be small) |

pressure is measured in: | pascals (Pa) |

1Pa = | 1N/m2 |

Kilopascals | kPa |

1kPa = _______Pa | 1000Pa |
