Pressure Unit Conversions

Pressure is basically a force exerted on a surface per unit area. There are various forms of pressure units, some described as the pressure of air, the atmospheric pressure, ambient pressure and many more. Represented by symbol p or P, pressure is usually a power applied to the surface of an object in an upright direction and its SI unit is the Pascal (Pa). Pressure is an important measurement that can be used to define the amount of force put in an object. The more extreme a force is on a given object, the more severe the pressure will be. If the area of an object reduces and the same amount of force is applied than pressure again increases.

Online Conversions is a one-stop source of unit conversions on web. Here converting one type of unit into another is very easy and convenient. The pressure converter tool at Online Conversions is competent to convert between bars, gigapascals, kilopascals, newtons per square meter, millibars, pounds per square inch and other metric and imperial pressure units.

As stated above, there are different forms of pressure units, atmospheric pressure is defined as the force from the weight of the atmosphere that put pressure on a unit area. This pressure can be felt more in a liquid like in sea, where even a minor change in depth can also be felt. Blood pressure is the force that the blood exerts on a unit area in our artery walls while pumping of the heart. In order to make pressure unit conversions hassle-free, one should give a try to our online pressure unit conversion tool. This handy tool quickly offers conversion results by choosing one unit of pressure to another.

Pressure Unit Definition:
Pressure - the amount of force that is applied to an area where the force is distributed. The metric system unit used to describe pressure is the pascal (Pa) which translates to newtons per square meter. The symbol of pressure is p

Pressure formula:

p =F
F - force
A - area
