Pressure, force, area at a glance


Pressure is a measure of the amount of force per unit area that a solid object exerts on a surface. Pressure is usually measured in the metric units of Newtons per square metre (N/m²). Sometimes, particularly in physics, pressure is measured in pascals where 1 pascal is equal to 1 N/m²


Calculating pressure can be done using the formula Pressure = Force / Area. The formula can also be used for calculating force or area, given the pressure. This can be done by entering the values we know and rearranging to calculate the unknown value.


Air pressure is the force acting on a surface by the air above it being pulled by gravity.


Looking forward, students can then progress to additional compound measures worksheets and other ratio and proportion worksheets, for example a ratio worksheet or a simplifying and equivalent ratios worksheet




For more teaching and learning support on Ratio and Proportion our GCSE maths lessons provide step by step support for all GCSE maths concepts.


When you have students who require more intensive support our one to one GCSE maths revision programme will match them with the most appropriate tutor. This way we can provide individual students with personalised programmes of study while you continue to teach the rest of your class as a whole group. 


Our maths interventions are currently only available for GCSE students, and are not suitable for A level students.
