Pressure is force divide by unit area. Thus, if you have an air pressure of 100,000 Pascal, that means you have a force of 100,000 newton over an area of 1 square meter. It also means there is a force of 200,000 newton over an area of 2 square meters, a million newton over an area of 10 square meters, etc.

pressure = force / area Therefore pressure and force are directly proportional, meaning... The greater the force the greater the pressure and the lower the force the lower the pressure

Pressure is Force divided by Area (P=F/A), hence kgf/cm2 or pounds per square inch as the unit for pressure. The greater the force or the lower the area, the higher the pressure.

That is called pressure. For example, the SI unit for pressure is the Pascal, which is equal to newtons / square meters.

18N / 9 sq m = 2 N/square meter

The force exerted on a surface divided by the total area over which the force is exerted is the pressure. Pressure = Force / Area Pascals = Newtons/ square meters Pa = N/m^2 or psi = lb/in^2 (pounds per square inch)

pressure is force divided by area, so the greater the area the less the pressure for a given force

0.5 meter is not an area, that's a length. In general, the relation is: pressure (in pascal) is force (in newton) divided by area (in square meters).

Newton per m2 is equal to a Pascal Pascal's are a unit of pressure. If you think about it, the newton is force and the meters squared is area. Pressure is the measure of force per area.

Exactly the right question! 1 pascal of pressure is equivalent to 1 newton of force over 1 square meter of area.
