Physical Pressure Calculator
Calculate the pressure from force and area, with different units. In physics, pressure is when a force operates vertically on an area. Well known examples are air or water pressure.
The formula for pressure is p=F/A. Common units are pascal and bar, whereas one bar is one hundred thousand pascals. At one pascal, one newton presses on one square meter. One atmosphere is 1013.25 hectopascals (hPa) or millibars (mbar).
Example: at one atmosphere, 101.325 kilonewtons lie on a square meter.
