Description

Properties
Pressure is an effect which occurs when a force is applied on a surface. Pressure is the amount of force acting on a unit area. Pressure is distinct from stress, as the former is the ratio of the component of force normal to a surface to the surface area. Stress is a tensor that relates the vector force to the vector area.
$$p = \frac{dF}{dA}$$, where $$dF$$ is the force component perpendicular to the surface element of area $$dA$$.
