### Pressure

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
