Students will learn the difference between pressure and force and how to calculate the pressure in a variety of problems
Uncover the relationship between pressure, force, and contact area in the context of a truck tire.
Explains how pressure is used in hydraulic presses to allow people to lift very heavy objects.
Calculate force, pressure, and the area of basic geometric shapes. Explain the concept of pressure. Know that pressure is equal throughout a liquid.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Pressure and Force.
This study guide gives a brief overview of the properties of fluids: pressure, Pascal's law, Archimedes' principle, the continuity of fluid flow, Bernoulli's equation and conservation of energy, surface tension, viscosity, and turbulence.
